Orioles set home game times with earlier Sunday starts

The Orioles have announced start times for their 2018 home schedule, and folks attending Sunday games at Camden Yards are going to have to adjust their schedules.

Sunday games will now begin at 1:05 p.m., a change from the previous 1:35 p.m. start time.

Though games will start a half-hour earlier, Sundays will still be family days at the ballpark, which means fans ages 4-14 will be able to participate in a postgame Kids Run The Bases event, sponsored by Weis Markets.
