Power Plant Live! announced yesterday they will give away 1,000 orange crushes on the Friday after Orioles first baseman Chris “Crush” Davis breaks his streak of hitless games–1,500 if his first base knock is a homer.

Lee’s Pint & Shell today threw down the gauntlet.

Orioles first baseman Chris Davis, as you may have heard, is in a bit of a rut right now. Last night he broke the record for most consecutive at-bats without a hit, going 0-for-47.

And after Davis went hitless in his next two plate appearances, the number is at 49 and counting ahead of tonight’s game against the Oakland Athletics.

2019 Orioles Opening Day in photos


Orioles fans showed up to the home opener at Oriole Park at Camden Yards in their best attire. Whether it was foam fingers or full-on orange suits, fans got gussied up to watch the home team return after a 4-2 road trip to start the 2019 season.

While the Orioles home opener on April 4 may be for the baseball nuts and hard-partiers, the first Sunday game at Oriole Park at Camden Yards is for the kids.

The April 7 matinee against the New York Yankees is Kids’ Opening Day and includes a bag lunch to the first 7,500 fans age 14 or younger and a chance for kids ages 4-14 to run the bases after the game.

Now, the game will also double as a birthday party for the Oriole Bird, the team announced.

Opening Day is merely days away, and with a new GM at the helm, it feels like the only way for the Orioles is up. With that in mind, the franchise announced today that it’s bringing back one of its most popular promotions ever, letting parents bring the kids along to ballgames free of charge.

After waving bye-bye to radio play-by-play man Joe Angel, Orioles fans will hear Kevin Brown call 50 games on the Orioles Radio Network this year. No, not Kevin Brown the pitcher (who made a brief stopover in Baltimore in 1995), and no, not the Kevin Brown who co-owns the Station North Arts Cafe.

It’s the Kevin Brown who does commentary for ESPN’s coverage of high school football, college football, college basketball and college hockey, and has served as lead broadcaster for the Syracuse Chiefs, the Triple-A affiliate of the Washington Nationals.

Players, now participating in workouts in Sarasota, Florida, will have a commemorative patch with Robinson’s number 20 on the sleeve of their jerseys for all spring training and regular season games.
