Baltimore Orioles (and Philadelphia Phillies) Home Opener(s)

Today, hubby and I are heading to Baltimore for the Orioles home opener. All the way back in December, I gave hubby a four-pack of tix which included the home opener. Good thing I did! They are sold out! I can see why. They made it to the play-offs for the first time since 1997 in 2012 and they this week they won 2 of 3 against the Tampa Bay Devil Rays (I don't care what you say, they are the DEVIL Rays!).

Of course, my team...

...the Philadelphia Phillies are also opening at home today. Baltimore starts at 3:05 p.m., while the Phils get underway at 4:05 p.m. Blargh! See what a great wife I am? I bought tix to hubby's team rather than my own.

Either way you look at it though, baseball is back! So excited!! Hope ya'll have a great Friday! Tomorrow, hubby and I are running the Movie Madness 5k here in town. Hoping to beat last November's time at this race, though they changed the course. We shall see...

Are you excited for baseball? Do you have a favorite team? Any running plans for the weekend?


  1. You are my baseball soulmate! I grew up outside of Philly and am a DieHard Phillies fan. I live in Baltimore so I'm an Orioles fan, as long as they aren't playing the Phillies!

  2. Lauren, me too! I grew up in South Jersey, so I'm a Philly sports fan. Hubby grew up in Central PA and is a die-hard O's fan. The O's are my American League team, but if they play each other my allegiance is clearly defined - Phillies!
