BALTIMORE, Md. (WJZ) — The Birdland Caravan will visit 11 sites to bring fans the Orioles Park experience this weekend, February 7 through February 9.
To kick off the Birdland Caravan, the Orioles first stopped at Hall’s Cross Roads Elementary school Friday morning to teach lessons about teamwork to nearly 500 students who engaged in various games and team-building exercises.
But there are so many more stops ahead!
The caravan, including the Oriole Bird, infielders Gunnar Henderson and Richie Martin and manager Brandon Hyde, also stobbed by Timonium Elementary School, getting young fans excited.
The kids played games that required working with the team, then some of the participants gave their take on what teamwork means to them.
“You persevere and always do what your teammates want you to do,” one kid said.
“Being a good teammate is about respecting everybody else on the club, knowing not one person is more important than anybody else and we’re all in this together,” Hyde said.
