Wednesday night was legislative appreciation night at the Orioles' first night game, and most of the General Assembly was there.
But unless fans attending the game had taken in the day's newspapers or other media, chances are they didn't know their elected leaders were present.
Reason? A legislative leader asked the Orioles not to make any announcement. And the ballclub didn't, either by loudspeaker or on its center field scoreboard -- which, as usual, did note the presence of many other special groups.
