Replica Brooks Robinson jerseys are in
Orioles director of communications Greg Bader told me today that the replica Brooks Robinson jerseys originally scheduled to be given away at Oriole Park on July 17 have now arrived.

As a reminder, if you're planning to redeem your voucher via...

Quick O's Notes

Quick O's Notes
Brian Roberts and Jake Fox made an appearance at BWI Airport today, but don't worry, you didn't miss a chance to see this pair of Birds in person. The event wasn't open to the public, but Roberts and Fox participated in the Southwest Airlines "Trading Places" promotion today. The Orioles announced that B-Rob and Fox would be trying their hands at a variety of jobs carried out by Southwest employees at BWI. I don't have any further details to pass along, but if I get my hands on some,...

This week in O's history

This week in O's history
This particular week in the calendar year has seen some milestones for the O's throughout the team's history. Going the farthest back and on this day in O's history, Cal Ripken Jr. passed Steve Garvey for the third-longest consecutive games streak by playing his 1,280th straight game. Cal and the O's faced the Toronto Blue Jays on August 18, 1989, and the game was otherwise unremarkable for Cal, but the shortstop would of course go on to set a new major league record by playing in 2,632...
