The Orioles today have announced plans to welcome fans back to the ballpark to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Oriole Park at Camden Yards during the club’s home opener on Monday, April 11, at 3:05 p.m. ET against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Festivities will begin at 2:25 p.m. ET with a special pre-game ceremony emceed by Orioles broadcaster ROB LONG. Opening Day will feature:

  • 30th Anniversary Tribute Video: The Orioles will welcome fans back to their ballpark and celebrate the 30th anniversary of Oriole Park at Camden Yards with a video tribute featuring an original poem by Baltimore-based poet and author KONDWANI FIDEL.
  • National Anthem: The MORGAN STATE UNIVERSITY CHOIR, one of the groups to perform the inaugural national anthem at Oriole Park on April 6, 1992, will return to perform their rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner from the sod farm prior to the game. A 30’ x 42’ flag from Fort McHenry will be lowered from the batter’s eye during the performance. The flag is a replica of the one that flew over Fort McHenry when Francis Scott Key wrote the national anthem.
  • Color Guard: Colors will be presented by members of THE BALTIMORE CITY POLICE COLOR GUARD and BALTIMORE CITY FIRE DEPARTMENT COLOR GUARD.
  • Flyover: The national anthem performance will conclude with a flyover by the 104th Fighter Squadron of the Maryland Air National Guard 175th Wing.
  • Ceremonial First Pitch: The Orioles will honor fallen Baltimore Police Officer Keona Holley, who lost her life on December 23, 2021, after being shot in a senseless act of violence while sitting in her patrol car seven days earlier, and three of Baltimore City’s fallen heroes who lost their lives while battling a fire on January 24, 2022. They will be represented by a family member who will throw out the first pitch in their honor.
    • Baltimore Police Officer KEONA HOLLEY: Represented by her son Kortez Baker
    • Firefighter and paramedic LIEUTENANT PAUL BUTRIM: Represented by his mother-in-law Michelle Henninger

  • Silver Slugger Presentation: Manager BRANDON HYDE and Louisville Slugger Representative AARON GILLETTE will present CEDRIC MULLINS with his Silver Slugger Award as part of the pregame ceremony. Mullins earned his first-career Silver Slugger after setting career-highs and leading the Orioles in nearly every major offensive statistical category in 2021. He is the first Oriole to be named a Silver Slugger recipient since MARK TRUMBO in 2016.
  • Mo Gaba’s Fan of the Year: The Orioles will recognize JEFFREY AUSTIN as Mo Gaba’s 2022 Fan of the Year. A Lutherville, Md. resident, Austin has been a Birdland Member since 1989 and will be representing all Birdland Members who have been members since the beginning of Oriole Park at Camden Yards. He will also deliver the ceremonial game ball and rosin bag prior to the game. 
  • Ceremonial “Play Ball”: Members of the Orioles Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities program will yell “Play Ball” from their seats in section 72 prior to the game. 
  • Birdland Community Hero: Again this year, the Orioles will honor and recognize those in our community who have distinguished themselves by selflessly volunteering in fields that care for, serve, teach, protect, and improve the lives of others through the Birdland Community Heroes program. On Monday, the Orioles will recognize PAM CLINEKATHI HOWARDRICHARD SUEHLE, and STEPHANIE TYRRELL for their 30-plus years of service with Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland. Cline and Howard have been volunteering with Meals on Wheels for the past 32 years. Cline was inspired to volunteer after seeing an ad in her weekly church bulletin, and enlisted her sister, Howard, to join her. Suehle has been volunteering with Meals on Wheels for the past 38 years, delivering in the Woodlawn and Perry Hall areas. In 2000, Suehle became a part of a new program, taking local Perry Hall High School students on deliveries with him. Though the program has since ended, Suehle continues to volunteer at the St. Anthony site in Baltimore. Tyrrell has been volunteering with Meals on Wheels for the past 34 years, delivering in Harford County. As part of their recognition, the Orioles Charitable Foundation will make a $5,000 donation to Meals on Wheels of Central Mayland. 
  • Opening Day Auction: Fans will have the opportunity to bid on a selection of authentic Oriole Park seats from the left field wall renovation as part of the Orioles Opening Day Auction to benefit local organizations through the Orioles Charitable Foundation.
