Signs made in Laurel welcome All-Star guests

When visitors to Major League Baseball's All-Star FanFest at Festival Hall and the Baltimore Convention Center gaze upon the 20-by-20-foot Orioles' banners and other signs, they will be viewing the work of Madison Avenue Signs of Laurel.

Owned by Steve Hall and Charles Wiemers, high school soccer teammates from Chicago who were recently reunited in this area, the company has been in business since January.

This, however, is the firm's second "baseball job."

Madison Avenue Signs previously received a $25,000 contract from the Bowie Baysox to provide the advertising banners and other signs for Memorial Stadium where the team is playing this year.

The company has decided to pursue events such as trade shows, parades, national sales meetings and sporting events.
