Orioles Can Koozie and Oriole Park Scavenger Hunt Night
Don't miss the Orioles can koozie giveaway tonight at Camden Yards. The first 10,000 fans 15 and older will receive a free O's koozie courtesy of At&T. Along with the koozie, you'll also receive instructions for how to take part in the Oriole Park Scavenger Hunt this evening. Unfortunately I can't stay for the scavenger hunt this evening, so those of you who make it, fill the rest of us in using the comment box below!
Kam Mickolio in the community:
Just two days after the O's were forced to place right-hander Kam Mickolio on the 15-day disabled list (retroactive to September 7) with right shoulder inflammation, the O's hurler will make his way out to Owings Mills to spend some time with fans and sign autographs.
Mickolio will be at the Chick-fil-A at 10480 Owings Mills Boulevard from noon to 1:00 p.m. this Saturday (September 19), so don't miss your chance to see Kam out in the community this weekend!
Already ready for the 2010 O's:
You've probably heard that the Orioles announced the Birds' schedule for next year, but here are a few highlights in case you didn't get a chance to take a closer look.
The O's begin next season on the road with a three-game set in Tampa against the Rays, which marks only the 17th time in 57 years that the Orioles have opened their schedule away from home.
Don't miss the home opener then on Friday, April 9 as the O's take on the Blue Jays for their first game at Camden Yards in 2010.
The Orioles will play each of their AL East rivals three times at Oriole Park, and all of the AL Central teams will make one visit each to Camden Yards.
The O's will face the NL East at home and the NL West on the road in interleague play, which means the O's pitchers will have to brush up with their bats against the Nationals, the Giants, and the Padres, while the Nats, Mets and Marlins will need to select a DH for their games at Oriole Park.
The O's will play the most games at home during the month of June and the most games on the road during the mid-summer month of July.
Finally, the Birds will wrap up their 2010 regular season with a four-game series against the Tigers from September 30 to October 3.
But at times it seems too early to be wrapping up this season, let alone the next one already, so don't miss your last few chances to catch the Orioles at the Yard in 2009, as the O's face the Red Sox for the games this weekend before heading out on the last road trip of the season. Then after 10 games away, they'll give you one last chance to watch them at home with a final weekend series against Toronto from October 2-4.
