This summer the ESPN Zone will also host the second annual Orioles Cook-Off, where three O’s players will compete to determine the best chef in Birdland.
Last year’s inaugural event was a lot of fun, as then-Oriole Gregg Zaun and fan favorites Brian Roberts and Jeremy Guthrie battled at their respective cooking stations to make some delicious looking meals.
When the dishes were complete, a panel of judges (including MASNsports.com’s own Roch Kubatko) decided who would be named the best chef in Birdland.
If you missed the event or its recap here in the O’s Buzz, you can check that out here.
This year’s O’s Cook-Off will take place on Wednesday, May 26 with a time not yet announced.
As for the Battle of the Birds, the Oriole Bird will challenge the Nats’ Screech in a series on contests a few hours before the Orioles and Nationals take the field at Camden Yards. Head to the ESPN Zone on June 25 to show the Bird your support!
And last but not least, Brian’s Baseball Bash is scheduled for Sunday, August 22 at the ESPN Zone this summer.
Stay tuned for more details on Brian’s annual Bash here in the Orioles Buzz and in B-Rob’s B-Log only on MASNsports.com throughout the summer months.
