Throwback Thursday: It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s ...

With the recent addition of Everth Cabrera, it looks like the Orioles roster is coming together, but there are still position battles to be fought. Right now, David Lough is fighting for a spot on the 25-man roster. In his first year in Baltimore, Lough contributed some memorable moments to a memorable season. The one that comes to mind for me is ... well, let’s

Birdland Golf Classic raises $40,000 for Miracle League of Manasota

The fifth annual OriolesREACH Birdland Golf Classic, held Monday at the Founders Club in Sarasota, was a rousing success, raising more than $40,000 for the Miracle League of Manasota. Those monies will help to fund the Miracle League for the entire upcoming season, ensuring that 14,000 school-aged children with disabilities and their adult counterparts in Manatee and Sarasota counties can continue to play ball. Their

Throwback Thursday: Wieters’ extra special walk-off

Today’s the day! Spring training officially kicks off today in Sarasota. It’s nice to have warm weather and Orioles baseball going on, even if it is hundreds of miles away from Baltimore. As camp gets under way, there are still questions that remain to be answered for the Birds. Near the top of the list: Will Matt Wieters be ready for opening day? Last season

Orioles’ partnership with Sarasota County proves valuable for both parties

While the Orioles’ location of spring training operations in Sarasota County began as a back-up plan of sorts, it has become a valuable and uniting force between the O’s and the county. When the Orioles failed to lock down a long-term deal with the city of Fort Lauderdale for spring operations more than five years ago, they began to look west. “We did the

MASN’s Mike Bordick recalls O’s 1999 exhibition in Cuba

When President Barack Obama announced plans to normalize U.S. relations with Cuba in December, news broke less than two months later that the Orioles are among the teams interested in playing an exhibition game there this spring. This might all sound familiar for a reason. Sixteen years ago, after the United States lifted travel restrictions to Cuba, the Orioles played a home-and-home exhibition series with

Henneman has lived the duration of “60 Years of Orioles Magic”

When the Orioles were seeking a writer to chronicle their first six decades in Baltimore, longtime journalist Jim Henneman was a logical choice, one found in their own backyard. The 79-year-old Henneman’s lifetime practically mirrors the Orioles’ tenure in Charm City. As a youth, he worked in the clubhouse at Oriole Park, home of the team during its Triple-A run from 1946-53. He attended the

Spring training promotional giveaways, special events announced by O’s

It wasn’t so long ago that a spring training game was enough of an event to draw fans in Florida and Arizona communities that had no other access to Major League Baseball. But times change, and even Grapefruit League games need a little creative nudge, something special to bring the fans out. The Orioles today announced their list of promotional giveaways and special events for

Throwback Thursday: Crush, Crush, Crush

Following a 53-home run season, there were a lot of eyes on Chris Davis in 2014. The slugger may not have had the numbers he had hoped for, but Crush Davis still crushed baseballs. This week, we’re throwin’ it back to Davis’ three-homer game in Pittsburgh. Enjoy watching Crush do what Crush does in the video below. Your browser does not support iframes.

Orioles continue to impact Sarasota community

While Orioles fans in the Baltimore area are counting down the days to sunny skies, warm weather and the return of baseball at Camden Yards, a huge flock of O’s fans in Sarasota, Fla., is just days away from the return of their favorite team. Since moving their full-time spring training operations to Sarasota in 2010, the Orioles have been able to make a huge

Who doesn’t love a little bit of history? On this week’s “Orioles Classics,” we’ve have two historic events for you to relive, including Cal Ripken Jr.’s 3,0000th hit. Here’s what’s on deck on MASN HD: Wednesday, Feb. 11, 12:30 p.m.: The start of the 1988 season was not kind to the Orioles. There’s no way to tiptoe around an 0-21 start. The team did not

Another fun-filled FanFest is in the books

On Saturday, more than 16,000 fans gathered at the Baltimore Convention Center to kick off another season of Orioles baseball. The MASN booth stood in the middle of the excitement, offering fans ways to win prizes and take photos with their favorite players. One of the biggest hits of the day was MASN’s #SwagGrab claw machine. We rewarded our Twitter followers with an opportunity to
