Never has that clichÃƒÂ© 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 the Babe Ruth Birthplace Foundation.
The orange Under Armour Tech T-shirts sport the Right Side Foundation logo on the front and Markakis’ name and jersey number on the back (with the foundation’s web address below them).
So you’ll not only be supporting the O’s, but helping a good cause as well.
Fans can purchase the shirts ($24.99 each) anytime before the Orioles’ home opener against the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday, April 9.
Sizes range from extra small (actually a youth XL) through XXX Large.
You can click here to place an order, or you can pick up one of the shirts at the Sports Legends Museum store at the north end of the Warehouse at Camden Yards (near the retired number statues, ticket booths, and Babe Ruth statue).
Also on another note, don’t miss O’s Xtra tonight for Amber Theoharis talking with Matt Wieters about the expectations put on a young team and Rick Dempsey’s picks for breakout performance this season.
