Orioles Rock Special Unis in First Home Game Since April 29th (Tweet and Pic)
The last time the Orioles played at Camden Yards, the stadium was empty, and people were rioting in nearby streets. This time around, order has been restored, and the Birds wanted to show some love for their city by wearing uniforms that said “Baltimore” in the familiar script, rather than “Orioles.” A small gesture, sure, but a thoughtful one.
Here are the uniforms from last night. Blink and you’d miss ’em, but they’re pretty cool:

By all accounts, the city and people of Baltimore are happy to have baseball back in Charm City. The O’s were gone for two weeks following the riots and tension in the city. Though there are still issues peppering the city, the team has returned, and baseball is back….
…Oh, and they went on to beat the Blue Jays by a score of 5-2.
