Orioles: Baltimore on their chests

The Orioles broke out their spring road uniforms today and for the first time in a very long time, they have Baltimore on the front of their jerseys..

"It's beautiful,'' said third baseman Melvin Mora.

The spring road version is not the same as the regular season jersey, which is gray. The spring tops are black with orange script and will also be the road batting practice jerseys during the regular season.

little things mean a lot .

What! No pictures???

Pete's reply: Try to imagine the black batting practice jerseys with Baltimore on them in script.

The more I see the new unis, the less I like the Maryland patch on the arms...

It's just not a good looking logo. It looks like I made it on the basic Paint program in Windows.

The Ravens shield, the Maryland Banner-flag... both well done, both fit into the logos. But some random big circle with clashing colors (black, gold, white, red, orange, gray?)... ick.

The BPs look much nicer with clean sleeves.


Any pictures of the uniforms?

Pete's reply: No. Sorry.

when can a lay person buy one of these beauties?

Are the "Spring tops" going to be available?

Pete's reply: Don't know. They're really the same as the BP road jerseys for the regular season.

black batting practice jerseys with 'Baltimore' on them in script.

Pete, could you describe them a little more???? I'm just not picturing it. LOL


Finally, we instill some badly-needed provincialism and geographic identity back into the wearing of the orange and black. These guys will make this city proud once again in the not-too-distant future. Thanks to Mr. Angelos in seeing how much this means to the Orioles faithful.

HA!!!!!!!!!!! Yea Im sure it was all Angelos idea, yea right....

I really want to buy one of these. Pete, if you can get a word in with anyone, see if they can't make them available on the team site. Appreciate the blog. Go O's!

See pic of Koji firing the high hard one in his "Baltimore" Jersey in today's (2/28) Sun.

Go O's
Lookin' Good
Playin' Better.

You can buy these jerseys in various locations, including the Baltimore Sun online store. Here is the link to it:

Recently retired QB Kurt Warner is about to be honored with the immortalization of his jersey number -- but not by an NFL team.
The Arena Football League's Iowa Barnstormers will retire Warner's No. 13 this Friday. He will be on hand for the game as an announcer for the NFL Network.
"We think it's great for the Barnstormer fans to have him back," Barnstormers owner Jeff Lamberti told the Des Moines Register.
"He is clearly the most famous Iowa Barnstormer and most famous guy coming out of arena football. He's great for our league, and we're thrilled that he wants to broadcast our game."
Kurt Warner played three seasons for the Barnstormers and threw 183 TD passes for them before getting his shot in the NFL.
As part of a promotion for the game, the Barnstormers are lowering some ticket prices to $13 in honor of Warner.

Carson Hilton Palmer (born December 27, 1979) is an American professional football quarterback for the Cincinnati Bengals of the National Football League. He was drafted by the Bengals first overall in the 2003 NFL Draft. He played collegiately at the University of Southern California and won the Heisman Trophy in 2002. He has been selected to two Pro Bowls.
In the 2010 NFL Draft, the Bengals drafted 3 more pass catchers for Carson Palmer: Oklahoma tight end Jermaine Gresham in the first round, Texas wide receiver Jordan Shipley in the third round, and Kansas wide receiver Dezmon Briscoe in the sixth round. During OTA's (Organized Team Activities), Palmer asserted himself as the leader of the team by calling out Chad Ochocinco, saying that the number one receiver should be there with the team.
During the 2010 Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio, Carson Hilton Palmer completed 2 out of 5 passes for 18 yards, both to wide receiver Terrell Owens. He only played two series in the entire game.

About Peter Schmuck
Peter Schmuck wants you to know that, contrary to popular belief, he is more than just a bon vivant, raconteur and collector of blousy flowered shirts. He is a semi-respected journalist who has covered virtually every sport -- except luge, of course – and tackled issues that transcend the mere games people play. If that isn’t enough to qualify him to provide witty, wide-ranging commentary on the sports world ... and the rest of the world, for that matter ... he is an avid reader of history, biography and the classics, as well as a charming blowhard who pops off on both sports and politics on WBAL Radio. That means you can expect a little of everything in The Schmuck Stops Here, but the major focus will be keeping you up to the minute on Baltimore’s major sports teams and themes, whether it’s throwing up the Orioles lineup the minute it’s announced or updating you on the latest sprained ankle in Owings Mills. Oh, and by the way, that’s Mr. Schmuck to you.
