Prior to the second game of the 9/12 doubleheader against the Yankees, CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield presented a check in the amount of $750,000 to the B’more for Healthy Babies. Throughout the season, CareFirst donated $50 for each Orioles walk this season. To complement the over $17,650 in Healthy Walks already earned this year, CareFirst increased their contribution to $750,000 to support B’more for Healthy Babies.
The Game 1 victory on September 13 marked the 5,000th win in Baltimore Orioles history (including postseason). Thanks to #Os5000 contest winner @RomeoBaltimore for sharing this photo to help celebrate.
