So happy to have Taylor from Whiskey Ginger guest posting in our last week of the "What to Wear to a Baseball Game" series. We're switching the guest post from Friday to Tuesday this week, and Taylor was sweet enough to accommodate and let me take my birthday off (Ya girl is 23 today). I'm also just getting back from my time in Kentucky for the Derby so after a day of traveling the last thing I want to do is a post. Anywayyyys … a BIG thanks to Taylor (how cute does she look?!) for rocking today's post!
An MLB team located in Baltimore, MD and members of the American League East division. The Orioles spent their first years as the Milwaukee Brewers in Milwaukee, WI before moving to St. Louis to become the Browns. They finally moved to Baltimore in 1954 and adopted the name "Orioles" to honor the state bird. Their team colors are black, orange and white and play their home games at Orioles Park at Camden Yards. Also known as the O's or the Birds, the Orioles have won three World Series championships, the most recent being in 1983.
I was so excited when Krista asked me to represent the O's!
After moving to Baltimore for college, I realized how intense the sports fans are there. The people of Baltimore bleed purple for the Ravens and orange for the Orioles.
It didn't take me long to jump right in. During my time at Loyola, we would spend our spring and fall nights downtown cheering on the O's. Camden Yards became our destination -- we would jump on the light rail with hundreds of people in orange shirts and head down to celebrate our team.
Opening weekend was always my favorite because it started at Pickles. The street next to Camden Yards would close down, food tents would line the streets and we would sip on our Natty Boh and cheer on the O's.
Comfort is key because of how crowded everything gets downtown on game day. I usually rock a pair of shorts, my favorite Orioles Tee and a pair of converse.
Now whenever I visit my friends who still live down there, a trip is not only incomplete without crabs, but its also missing something if we don't head down to Pickles and to Camden Yards to watch a game.
I can't wait to be back down there this summer and visit the gorgeous Camden Yards stadium and root for the Birds!!
