New Look O's?

The Orioles are hosting a fan rally on Nov. 12, and though the organization is keeping quiet about the occasion, the team is using the event to unveil new uniforms. Of course, the Orioles seems to hint at the uniform changes. A flier that announces the event features a tightly cropped shot of a road jersey.

If you look at it closely enough, you can make out a script M, O and R, which makes sense considering that the main change is to the road jersey. Apparently, the familiar script "Baltimore" is making a comeback from the team's glory days. For a reminder of these slick jerseys, check them out in this neat database.

Apparently, the Orioles' caps are also being changed, though it's not clear to what extent. This is good news for wierdos such as myself. I've been collecting caps since 1996, with the main rule being that if a team stops wearing them, I add them to the collection.

So, it looks like I'll be picking up an O's hat. We'll find out for sure soon enough. The announcement is set for noon on Nov. 2 on the second floor of the Gallery at Harborplace. The event is free.

I'm amazed that for all the p-ing and moaning about not having Baltimore on the road uniforms, the last time it was on the road unis was in 1972. Yet Peter Angelos gets blamed? When you can blame Angelos for so much that's true, why do fans need to invent trangressions?

i'd far prefer they spend they're time and money on developing talent. the team of my youth is an embarrassment, regardless of the packaging.
