Orioles to host Army-Navy doubleheader, play 2019 exhibition game in Annapolis
It's widely considered that the rivalry between our nation's military and naval academies is the greatest in all of American sports.

They re-signed Brandon Kintzler to a one-year deal to keep the Law Firm bullpen intact. Matt Adams was signed to a...
