We’ve reached the final three games in our countdown of the top 25 games in Camden Yards history, and No. 3 airs tonight at 7 p.m.
Without revealing the specifics of the game - that wouldn’t be much fun, would it? - I think it’s safe to say this particular contest was a grand occasion.
In the meantime, we have four “Orioles Classics” for your viewing pleasure this week. And what better way to prepare for the 2017 season with four homer-iffic games from last year?
Tuesday, March 21, 7:30 p.m. - It takes a lot to dampen the enthusiasm at Camden Yards on opening day. A pair of rain delays for the April 4, 2016 game against the Twins didn’t get the home fans down, and Matt Wieters sent them home happy with a walk-off single that gave the Orioles a victory.
Wednesday, March 22, 9 a.m. - Before this game on April 15, 2016, no Orioles player had ever hit two home runs in the same inning. After this game, one had - Mark Trumbo turned the trick during a nine-run seventh.
Friday, March 24, noon - In a battle of the vowels on May 8, 2016, the O’s used six home runs to defeat the A’s.
Saturday, March 25, 2 p.m. - What’s better than six homers? How about seven? The Orioles teed off for seven longballs in a victory over the Red Sox on June 2, 2016.
