Zach Wilt: Arms will dictate Orioles’ success in 2018

In 2018, the Orioles will go as far as their starting pitching will take them. I think I’ve been writing that same sentence for the last seven years. It’s basic, but it’s true. The O’s offense is strong and should be even better this season. Last year, the team fell out of contention because its starting pitching struggled. The Birds’ rotation ranked last in ERA

Orioles to honor UMBC men’s basketball team’s historic upset on UMBC Pride Night

There’s a reason why the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament is also called March Madness. Every year, the tournament is filled with crazy and unexpected upsets. Top seeds struggle to get through their own regions, No. 5 seeds dread their first-round matchups against the No. 12 seeds and national powerhouses get eliminated by mid-major schools. Some would argue it’s the best sporting event there is, and

For both Army and Navy, “an incredible experience” at Camden Yards

The first flakes fluttered from the sky late in the sixth inning of the opening game of Sunday’s doubleheader between Army West Point and Navy at Camden Yards. They floated and danced from the clouds, but barely had any effect on what was happening on the field between two rival service academies. Within minutes, however, the ballpark was engulfed in a full-fledged snow squall. And

LOCASH headlines charity concert at Ed Smith Stadium

Who says the end of spring training needs to be a sad time? Yes, the ending of camp means the regular season is about to start.
