On Thursday September 5 the O’s are handing out 10,000 plaid hats to fans 15 and over in attendance for the game against the Chicago White Sox. As the picture to the right shows, Adam Jones has autographed 12 of them that will be randomly handed out.
If you rock the below the knee plaid shorts and are a fan of the Birds, you better get your tickets now.
It will certainly be interesting to see the attendance at Camden Yards on the fifth. In case you forgot, that was the date that Roger Goodell and the NFL tried to strong arm the Orioles and Major League Baseball into moving their game to accompany the Ravens home opener. Fans who don’t know how the NFL operates (have you seen the news of Goodell and co. pulling the plug on an ESPN documentary about concussions?) still think the Orioles are to blame for the Ravens opening on the road.
It should also be noted that even though plaid isn’t my style, the O’s have had some pretty awesome giveaways this season. Their BP hat, Crush Davis and Base Bandit shirts have been some of my personal favorites.
