Oriole Park at Camden Yards
Blue Jays vs Orioles 8/1/19
The Game: My cousin happened to be pitching for the Orioles for this game, but unfortunately the Blue Jays were really good...not just against him but the whole Oriole pitching crew. Lots of homers and doubles hit in this one. Vlad Jr was on fire in this game with 2 homers and a double. Final was Blue Jays over the Orioles 11-2.
My Highlights: The craziness of being able to be at this game with my cousin pitching is a miracle in itself. His last name is Wojciechowski and was originally playing for the AAA Columbus team under the Cleveland Indians. Around the beginning of July he was traded to the Orioles. He had a few rough games but still managed 2 fantastic games vs the Red Sox and Angels. His number happens to be #29 and this was my 29th stadium on my tour pitching the exact game I knew I would be attending a year ago. All I can do is scratch my head and say “wow”. He goes by “Wojo”, because that’s a lot easier than the 13 letter version and I was able to make and buy a black jersey with that on it. So happy! The community relations dept for the Orioles was able to bless David and I with free tours of the stadium too. It truly is an amazing ballpark, and everyone around the US told me how nice it would be. I wish I could have chatted and visited my cousin more at the game, but couldn’t since he was busy pitching and everything.
