This is Baltimore. A little snow will not stop Oriole fans from driving slowly and with their heads up their asses to the Baltimore Convention Center for 2012 Orioles Fanfest. Eighty degree spring weather is a different story, though.
Orioles Fanfest is a day of celebrating the players — new acquisitions, veteran stars, and retired fan favorites — as well as the organization, raising optimism for the upcoming season.
Jim Palmer is one of the fixtures of Orioles Fanfest for decades as both a player and a broadcaster, collecting 268 wins, 211 complete games, 2,212 strikeouts, three Cy Young Awards, and three World Series rings.
It’s easy to type his name. Right, Orioles? Especially after nearly 50 years, right?
