The first Where in the Yard? winner of the 2010 season

It's hard to believe the first month of the baseball season has already played out - which means it's time for our first 'Where in the Yard?' winner of the 2010 season. Congrats to Jeremy from Cumberland for the sweep! Throughout the weeks in April, he racked up every point possible - plus the bonus for identifying the tougher Babe Ruth plaque to boot. So

Swings for Scholars

The Orioles will announce a new scholarship program tonight at Camden Yards called "Swings for Scholars".

First Q&A a success w/Atkins - Wieters up next

Today's Garrett Atkins Q&A provided a first look preview of a summer of O's events to come. Atkins arrived at the ESPN Zone shortly before noon and sat down center stage with the event's host, MASN O's broadcaster Jim Hunter.

Atkins will be answering questions from an O's broadcaster, as well as from fans, so this afternoon will

Where in the Yard? (Updated w/Answer)

After last week's image stumped quite a few of you, I won't say this week's 'Where in the Yard?' is easy, but I hope you'll have a better time identifying this week's picture from from the Yard. The many of you who routinely prove how well you know your O's already know how it's done. But if you're joining us for the first time, take

Another Oriole appearance

T-Shirt Tuesdays: Who should be featured?

The Orioles honored catcher Matt Wieters last night with the first T-Shirt Tuesday of the 2010 season. I have a feeling most O's fans were pleased with the choice in Wieters for the first round of T-Shirt Tuesdays, and more than 13,000 fans turned out to pick up their Wieters tees. But if you take a look at the O's Promotions schedule, you'll see that

Standings and a winner

You've waited a long time for the second set of standings for the Orioles Buzz weekly photo feature 'Where in the Yard?' - but those standings are finally here. It's been 11 weeks since Lauren was crowned our last winner, and we're long overdue for another. As I predicted, it was a pretty tight race near the finish line, and it came down again to

New season, new site

I'm sure you've noticed by now that MASNsports.com has received a face lift in the wake of the new baseball season.

Two birds with one stone

Never has that cliché seemed as gruesome as it does when you say it in Birdland.... But in any case, you can take care of two O's items in one swoop with the new exclusive T-shirts from the Right Side Foundation. Nick and Christina Markakis's Right Side Foundation has announced a limited edition T-shirt sale to raise money for the right fielder's charitable foundation and

But now you'll also be able to enjoy the food from several local restaurants inside Camden Yards. Look for the following food items from these local restaurants: Greene Turtle: Turtle bites and sliders

What's new at Oriole Park

You might remember this Orioles Buzz post filling you in on some maintenance going on at Camden Yards this offseason. Well, phase one of the Maryland Stadium Authority's deferred maintenance program is finished, and all the concrete and seats between the foul poles on the lower level have been replaced. The new seats have high backs and cup holders, and seats between the bases are

Hit one out of the park

If it wasn't obvious already, O's Buzz readers are the best. I checked out MASN's Fantasy Baseball game, and so far, if I'm not mistaken, the Orioles Buzz League is one of the most popular. Was it the prizes I hinted at, or were you just happy to show your support of the O's Buzz? (It's totally okay if you're thinking, "Hmm, yea...it might have
