BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The Orioles announced plans to celebrate the 25th anniversary season of Oriole Park at Camden Yards on Saturday, August 19, when the team hosts the Los Angeles Angels at 7:05 p.m. ET.
The Orioles are welcoming back at least 17 members of the first team to play at Oriole Park at Camden Yards – the 1992 Orioles.
Select players from the original 1992 team will take part in a charity Home Run Derby contest at Oriole Park prior to the game on Saturday.
Prior to Friday’s game, all fans will receive an Oriole Park 25th anniversary poster. Following the game, all fans can enjoy a spectacular fireworks display which will feature popular music from 1992.
On Saturday, August 19, all fans entering the ballpark will receive a 25th anniversary Oriole Park at Camden Yards replica ballpark. Prior to the game, the Orioles will honor returning members of the 1992 team and host the charity softball Home Run Derby with select players.
During Saturday’s game, Orioles uniformed personnel will wear 1992 replica throwback jerseys and caps that will later be authenticated, autographed, and auctioned off at www.orioles.com/auctions to benefit the Baltimore Orioles Charitable Foundation.
When Oriole Park at Camden Yards opened on April 6, 1992, a new era of Major League Baseball began. Oriole Park inspired a generation of ballpark construction and captured the nation’s attention from day one. In the 25 seasons that followed, it has served as the standard by which all new ballparks are measured and has become The Ballpark That Forever Changed Baseball™.
The Orioles are honoring the 25th anniversary throughout the 2017 season with promotions, special events, and a commemorative logo displayed on the right sleeve of all Orioles game jerseys and on official Rawlings® Major League Baseballs used in home games.
