New 'Bird' in town

February 14, 2002

The Orioles have added a right-handed bat, and he'll be in their lineup every day.

The club is putting a cartoon bird logo on its uniforms, the Orioles announced this week. The "Fun Bird," an Oriole holding a bat in a right-handed position, will be displayed on the left sleeve of jerseys and warm-up jackets. "It's something of a retro look that we think fans will like," Joe Foss, Orioles chief operating officer, said in a news release.

The Orioles also announced that they will wear orange-billed caps at home and all-black caps on the road. The team previously had worn the orange-billed cap only with black jerseys.
