The Baltimore Orioles broke out some special uniforms on Saturday to celebrate Maryland Day, but many fans did not seem to like them.
Take a look at the uniforms the Orioles were wearing for their home game against the Cleveland Indians.

The jerseys and bill of the cap featured patterns from the Maryland state flag. Those are the same patterns heavily embraced by the University of Maryland on their sports uniforms.
Most of the comments about the uniforms from fans on social media were negative.
The Orioles uniforms are hideous

Mark me as a “Nope” on these Orioles uniforms

Despite the negative feedback, the Orioles seemed to thrive in the unis. They scored six runs in the fourth to take a 7-0 lead on the Indians, while Andrew Cashner had allowed only one hit to that point.
