Patch previews Opening Day for the Orioles, who host the Twins Friday at Camden Yards.
The Orioles return to Oriole Park at Camden Yards for the first time since defeating the Yankees in Game 2 of the American League Division Series last fall. It's been a long winter, but to many fans, it felt like the shortest one in 15 years. A winning campaign last season means the first of 81 regular season games at Camden Yards comes with heightened anticipation. A 2-1 start against division rivals Tampa Bay doesn't hurt, either. Like with the roster, there aren't any major changes to Camden Yards itself. However, the warning track that rings the field just inside the fence has been replaced—the original synthetic surface was removed in favor of a blend of natural materials. The right field flag court features a new flag pole—that of …
Rain had been predicted for Friday afternoon.
Going downtown for the Orioles home opener on Friday? You may be able to leave the umbrella at home.
