Thorne begins his 29th season of Major League Baseball play-by-play coverage, his eighth with the Orioles, and Hunter returns for an 18th season as part of the Orioles broadcast team. Palmer enters his 22nd season as a color analyst for the Orioles, his only team in a 19-year major league career. Bordick is in his third season in the MASN booth.
