BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The UMBC Retrievers are getting a special pregame ceremony at Camden Yards next month, the Orioles announced Monday.
The O’s will honor the men’s basketball team prior to their game against the Cleveland Indians on April 20.
The Orioles are also hosting “UMBC Pride Night,” which will be the first of this season’s University Pride Night series.
The first 750 people who purchase the special package will receive a ticket and an Orioles cap in UMBC colors with the school’s mascot on the side.
The Retrievers made history earlier this month when they became the first 16th seed to knock off a No. 1 seed in men’s college basketball history.
UMBC — the only team from Maryland to make it to the NCAA Tournament this year — defeated the top-seeded Virginia Cavaliers, 74-54, in arguably the greatest upset in college sports.
The Cinderella story came to an end last week with a loss to No. 9 Kansas State.
