O's fans migrate to Matt Wieters Q&A

O's fans migrate to Matt Wieters Q&A
The lines of O's fans waiting in the spitting rain to meet Matt Wieters stretched around the building. One ESPN Zone employee even told me that anticipating the enormous crowd, she arrived at 6:45 a.m. - only to find that one Orioles fan beat her there. It was by far the most crowded ESPN Zone Orioles Q&A in the last few years, and extra tables accommodated the packed house to within arm's reach of young Oriole. You wouldn't have guessed it to look at Wieters, however. The same ease we...

Mother's Day with the O's

Mother's Day with the O's
In the past, when the O's were at home at Camden Yards on Mother's Day, there's typically been some sort of giveaway as you enter the ballpark. From picture frames to pink hats, moms are somehow acknowledged at the ballpark for their work, love and dedication throughout the year. This year, the O's will be in Minnesota on mom's special day, and the Twins earrings they're giving out at Target Field won't do an Orioles fan much good. But, you can still appreciate the pink bats and sweat...

So Jeremy should look out for an email from me and his MLB gift card in the mail soon to follow. Want an MLB gift card of your own?...

First Q&A a success w/Atkins - Wieters up next

First Q&A a success w/Atkins - Wieters up next
Today's Garrett Atkins Q&A provided a first look preview of a summer of O's events to come. Atkins arrived at the ESPN Zone shortly before noon and sat down center stage with the event's host, MASN O's broadcaster Jim Hunter. "So Roch Kubatko tells me you're the most talkative guy in the clubhouse, and you're going to make my job easy for me today," Jim joked to start off the afternoon. Atkins admitted that Roch might have been exaggerating a bit, but the first-baseman seemed...

Where in the Yard? (Updated w/Answer)
Welcome back to the Orioles Buzz and this week's 'Where in the Yard?' - And first of all, things always seem a little sweeter the morning after an Orioles' win, don't they? This week, even though the O's won't return home for another week or so, we get to return to the Yard early to test your eyes for all things Orioles.
