Orioles wives hold silent auction to kick off Red Sox series

They weren’t drafted by the Orioles or acquired in a trade from another team. They weren’t signed as free agents. They don’t wear uniforms or play second base or bat leadoff or cleanup. They don’t occupy a spot on the 25-man. In fact, they aren’t men at all. But they are connected with the Orioles and they do often have an impact on the city

O’s reach out to underprivileged youth

Each season, OriolesREACH hosts thousands of underprivileged youth as part of the Gameday Experience Program.

Following the O’s from Philly

What a game to have traveled to Philadelphia to see. Saturday night’s win against the Phillies made for an exciting night, and it was nice to find that I didn’t have to enjoy it alone. O’s fans came out in respectable numbers to support the Birds at Citizens Bank Park this weekend, and the evidence was visible throughout the City of Brotherly Love during the

In case you’re interested in the atmosphere in Philly this weekend...

You’ll likely either really like this post or you’ll hate it. That will all depend on how you feel about Twitter. If you hate it, pretend this post doesn’t exist, enjoy watching the Orioles on MASN HD against the Phillies, and have a great weekend.

Reimold’s easy to root for

When he’s sitting down, you don’t really notice that Nolan Reimold is a towering 6’4’’ and a not-so-lanky 205 pounds. His casual jeans and unassuming gray polo matched his easy demeanor as he worked his way through his first major community appearance at the ESPN Zone this afternoon the way he might work a 3-2 count--on his toes but with a confident eye. With the

Adam Jones Bobblehead Night

Bobblehead nights at Oriole Park usually tend to do two things: 1. Get lots of fans to come out to the Yard to support the Birds 2. Cause more than half of those fans to utter the phrase: “How come bobbleheads never really look like the person they’re supposed to be?” It’s true, few bobbleheads bear an exact likeness to their namesake, and we do

O, Would you look at that...

Not long before Nolan Reimold hit his seventh homer with the Birds Tuesday night, we noticed the sky above Oriole Park’s stadium walls was a brilliant orange. “A good sign?” one of our multimedia producers asked. “Must mean the O’s are going to win.” As our jokes about the “good omen” faded into the sounds of the crowd five stories below our windows, BAM, Reimold
