The O’s between innings: Palmer Edition

Back on St. Patrick’s Day, I posted two of the many Orioles commercials I came across on YouTube. The first was a look back to 1994, and the second involved a look ahead with the “This is Where” commercial highlighting the promise of the O’s cache of young talent. This time around, I’ll point you to a pair of endorsements from former Oriole, Hall of

Where in the Yard? (Updated w/Answer)

Even the marathon dentist appointment that delayed my posting of this week’s ‘Where in the Yard?’ couldn’t dampen an admittedly wet and gloomy day at Camden Yards - not when they’re setting up food, drink and merchandise booths on Eutaw Street in preparation for Opening Day. The renewal process around here is always refreshing after a long winter without ballgames or the buzz they create

Fantasy Baseball w/ MASN & the Orioles Buzz

Camden Yards is buzzing with the finishing touches of offseason maintenance; Nicole Sherry’s grounds crew are busy on the field, where the red clay has returned to the infield and crisp lines are visible in the Kentucky Blue Grass again; O’s Productions has been testing the sound system throughout the ballpark; spring training is already five weeks old; and the Opening Day countdown has broken

Around the O’s

As the O’s news continues to heat up as we get closer and closer to Opening Day, here’s a collection of unrelated O’s items you might be interested in. Also, if reading this makes you think of something else you want to know about the O’s, as always, feel free to ask and I’ll do my best to find out for you, maybe in another

Where in the Yard? (Updated w/Answer)

Welcome back for another week of ‘Where in the Yard?’ here in the Orioles Buzz. We only have a few weeks left before the Yard will be open to O’s fans, but we’ll keep posting photos here to make sure you’re really paying attention when you visit Oriole Park. But in the meantime, you know the rules: Take a look at the photo below and

The O’s between innings

During my recent search for a clip of Chuck Thompson calling an O’s game, I eventually found myself on YouTube, watching various Orioles commercials. There are plenty to keep you busy, from the Brad Bergesen commercial that we all heard about recently to videos of Jim Palmer pitching for Brylecream or the Money Store. Since there are so many, I thought we’d feature one of

Where in the Yard? (Updated w/Answer)

When we checked in last week for ‘Where in the Yard?’ the sun was shining on Oriole Park, and Opening Day felt closer than ever. This week, puddles are rippling on the edge of the infield, and the clouds seem to imply more rain is on the way. But there’s always an air of Orioles baseball here in the Orioles Buzz, and this week’s photo

Orioles stay with Aramark for 2010

After opening the floor for other food vendors following the 2009 season, it appears that Aramark will be returning as the Orioles’ concessionaire for the 2010 season, according to a recent article in the Baltimore Business Journal. The Orioles entertained interest from Centerplate, Deleware North, Levy Restaurants, and Legends Hospitality Management before deciding to stick with Aramark for the 2010 season. This offseason was the

More on the voice of Baltimore sports

If you haven’t read Steve Melewski’s article on former O’s and Colts broadcaster Chuck Thompson, it’s a nice tribute to a man (whom I think it’s fair to say) Charm City has missed since his passing now five years ago. I’m a little too young to remember summer nights spent under the spell of Chuck Thompson’s voice over the radio, but my father certainly isn’t

Wieters joins list of Orioles greats on the cover of SI

If you haven’t seen Matt Wieters on the cover of the most recent issue of Sports Illustrated, make sure you don’t miss it. Tom Verducci’s feature makes Wieters the first Oriole to grace an SI cover since the IronMan himself, Cal Ripken Jr., who was certainly no stranger to the pages of Sports Illustrated. Cal’s image made the cover nine times over the years, including

Flanny in the booth

MASN announced today that former Oriole Mike Flanagan will fill Buck Martinez’s place as color analyst in the broadcast booth for the 2010 season. Fans will hear Flanagan from the booth for the first time this season on April 15, as the O’s take on the Athletics in Oakland at 10:05 p.m. Flanagan will split games with Hall of Famer Jim Palmer, who will continue

Where in the Yard? (Updated w/Answer)

Today is one of those beautiful winter days at Camden Yards. The sun is shining; the snow has melted; the grass on the field has been mowed; and the sprinklers are doing the early work of bringing the Yard back to life. There were even a few people milling around Eutaw Street today on my way in, and Opening Day finally feels as near as

Bobbleheads past and present

The Orioles 2010 Promotions Schedule lists four different bobblehead nights during the upcoming season: Nolan Reimold, Adam Jones, and Nick Markakis mini bobbleheads, with a Matt Wieters standard bobblehead thrown in the mix mid-season. Unlike the wide open debate for five of the six T-Shirt Tuesdays on the promotions schedule (a Matt Wieters T-shirt will kick things off, but we’ll get to the remaining five
