Four. More. Days. We’re just four days away from opening day in Birdland and we can’t wait. For hot dogs in the stands. For the stands to be filled with a sea of orange.

Remembering the Orioles’ trip to Havana and what’s happened since

This week’s exhibition game in Havana between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Cuban National Team is another example of baseball being used as a positive step forward in the thaw of diplomatic relations between the United States and the island nation.

#TBT: Tyler Wilson impresses in first major league start

We’re at that point in spring training where tough decisions must be made. If you read Roch Kubatko’s morning post on the importance of today’s Orioles exhibition game, then you know it’s a big day for starting pitcher Tyler Wilson, who, amid Miguel Gonzalez’s command struggles this spring, finds himself competing for a spot in the starting rotation.

Out of the Park: MASN personalities and the Oriole Bird are ready for spring training games

They’re here! Finally, we have actual baseball being played as spring training games started this week. MASN’s Jim Hunter probably couldn’t wait to get out of Baltimore and to Sarasota, Fla., faster (especially since we saw snow last night) to call some Orioles spring training games on the radio for 105.7 The Fan. Time to get started. Bonnie dropped me off at BWI to head

#TBT: Schoop corrals Joseph’s throw, puts tag on Duda

The first spring training game on MASN is around the corner and baseball in Baltimore is right on its heels! In just a few days, I’ll be heading down to sunny Sarasota, Fla., to see games with my own two eyes for the first time in 2016.
