The Baltimore Orioles fans weren’t going to let the rain showers put a damper on their Opening Day celebration. The heavy rain earlier in the day didn’t discourage ticker holders. The Opening Day on 4/6/09 had the largest crowd in Oriole Park history. The home team kick off in 2009 was an impressive victory over the New York Yankees.
The Orioles Opening Day was a day to remember as the bats came alive and defeated the New York Yankees 10-5. The newest Oriole Cesar Izturis capped the day off by depositing for a two-run homer in the 8th inning. The Orioles added two more runs to put the game away.
The have been some changes in Camden Yards on Monday that hasn’t been seen it years. The oriole fans were really, really into to the game. There were many fans standing in a long line waiting to buy a jersey. The Yankees got roasted badly by the Oriole fans in the pre-game ceremony.
There was much to cheer about as the Orioles pounded out 14 hits against the Yankees. The majority of the fans thought the game was a rivalry and a good time to party. Many fans were excited to see vice president Joe Boden throw the first pitch during the Opening Day game.
