This Sunday during a spring training game the Baltimore Orioles will wear special green hats in recognition of the St. Patrick’s Day holiday which in my opinion look pretty awesome. But what may be more awesome is the hats aren’t being worn just for St. Patrick’s Day. After the game the hats will be autographed [...]

Orioles pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada threw another bullpen session Thursday morning. Wada had already thrown a few bullpen sessions this spring but began working on breaking balls in this one.
The left-handed Wada signed a two-year deal worth $8.15 million in December of 2011.

In the bottom of the 10th, Russ Canzler singled with two outs, and Flaherty, who already has a game-winning home run...
The 2012 Orioles finished 93-69, just behind the New York Yankees in the AL East division. Some feel it was done in mirrors, as the team benefitted from several wins in their last at bat.
