Orioles Card "O" the Day

An intersection of two of my passions: baseball cards and the Baltimore Orioles. Updated daily?

George Sherrill, 2009 Upper Deck #37

Yet another disheartening side effect of the Orioles sustained residence in the basement of the American League: baseball card photos showing a beautiful yet sparsely populated Oriole Park at Camden Yards. I'm going to tomorrow night's series opener against the Angels. It might be my last visit of the 2011 season, and it's supposed to be cool and brisk, which will be a nice change of pace. Baseball gods willing, the Birds will send me and 15,000 to 20,000 of my closest friends home for the weekend on a high note.

I was at Monday's game (from Michigan!) and my Dad, brother and I were commenting on how it was the most sparsely baseball game we'd ever gone to. They announced 11k, but it looked more like 3k. On the plus side, we got 2 foul balls!

sorry - "sparsely attended..."

They must not have been playing Boston or New York, eh?

Rob - There are benefits to near-empty stadiums, from a spectator standpoint. You probably could have had your pick of seats, too!

drew - Touche.
