With as much electricity as there appeared to be at Camden Yards on Thursday night, it would be hard not to have a high-energy telecast. Give cable channel TBS credit for that: It did a solid job of communicating the color, excitement and sheer joy in the stands for the American League Division Series opener as the Orioles beat the Detroit Tigers, 12-3. It might seem like an obvious choice, but coming out of commercials time and again with hand-held cameras in the face of fans in full orange-and-black regalia as they clapped, cheered and waved signs was definitely the way to go. I loved the field-level shots looking up into the stands.

SARASOTA, Fla. - Spoiler alert! A scene in the recently-released second season of "House of Cards" that features fictional politician Frank Underwood throwing out a pregame first pitch before an Orioles game at Camden Yards was less than three minutes long but it took two full months to execute. In the sixth episode of Season 2 of the Netflix political drama - which is filmed in the Baltimore area - the scene includes a staged national anthem and features cameos by former Orioles Jim Johnson and Nate McLouth.

For years all I've heard from other O'sfans is that the reason they don't go see the team is that the Orioles are perennial losers. However, this year the Orioles are in the race for the playoffs and nine games over .500, and what do we see? Roughly the same attendance numbers as last year when the team wasn't doing nearly as well. Contrast this to Pittsburgh whose Pirates are also typically under achievers. They are having a great season, and PNC Bank Park is filled to the brim. What will it take, Orioles fans, to get you to come back to the Camden Yards?

Camden Yards was still quiet about three hours before the 12:07 p.m. first pitch of Game 2 in the American League Division Series. Groundskeepers raked the dirt along the base paths and a few players stretched in the outfield. The sky lived up to the partly cloudy forecast, with patches of blue occasionally marred by passing gray. The Orioles will attempt to take a 2-0 lead over the Detroit Tigers behind left-hander Wei-Yin Chen on Friday afternoon. But Detroit manager Brad Ausmus said he actually liked the fact his team was facing a quick turnaround from its 12-3 loss in the Thursday evening opener.

" The Onion " took a jab at Baltimore's long struggle with drugs in a story this week. The satiric site reported that Oriole Park at Camden Yards would no longer sell crack after the seventh inning. “From now on, fans who have been hitting the pipe all afternoon can take a bit of a breather to come down and stop tweaking out long enough to stagger home safely," the site quotes a stadium official as saying. "That's what Orioles baseball is all about.” The story concludes by saying that stadium workers "would continue to check IDs for everyone seeking to purchase crack, noting that - per Baltimore city regulations - sales of the drug are prohibited to anyone 14 years of age or younger.

It's raining at Camden Yards and the tarp is on the infield, but the Orioles likely won't make a decision on whether they can start playing tonight's game against the Toronto Blue Jays until as late as 30 minute before the 7:05 start time. If tonight's game is postponed, they won't play a doubleheader Saturday because FOX wouldn't allow the Orioles to play a doubleheader to interfere with their national night baseball broadcasts. Playing a doubleheader Sunday has its challenges also because it's the final game before the All-Star break and it would interfere with the travel plans of players on both teams.

National Bohemian beer — popularly known as Natty Boh — will be sold on draft this season at Oriole Park at Camden Yards , according to a Pabst Brewing Co. representative. The beer will be available throughout the ballpark at the April 4 home season opener, said Rachel Anne Warren, a retail sales specialist with Pabst Brewing Co. Warren said sales of the beer, once marketed under the slogan, "Brewed in the Land of Pleasant Living," had exceeded expectations after it was reintroduced on tap at the end of January.
