The Baltimore Orioles will hold their annual FanFest Saturday, Jan. 23. Their FanFest will be held at the Convention Center, not Oriole Park this season. I’m happy it’s at the Convention Center. The O’s can have a bigger celebration for their fans.

Orioles fans will get to see at least 60 former, current and hopefully future Birds. Some of the current and future O’s that are expected to be there are Brian Matusz, Chris Tillman, Adam Jones and Matt Wieters. Of course, those four players are part of the O’s core for the future. This will be a great opportunity for fans to get to know the players even with a quick meet and greet situation.

Also, many former Orioles are going to be there including Hall of Famer Jim Palmer. Palmer is one of the most popular O’s and one of the nicest former players. All the fans attending FanFest, if the get a chance, should make their over to meet Palmer as it is a most enjoyable experience.

I hope there’s a big turnout this weekend, as there is a buzz surrounding the O’s this season. Many national publications have been impressed with the O’s and the FanFest is a great way for the fans to see the progress the franchise is making.
