25th anniversary logo honors Oriole Park

BALTIMORE -- The Orioles will wear a commemorative patch on the right sleeve of their jerseys in 2017 to honor the 25th anniversary season of Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

The logo, which was unveiled on Friday, will also be used on official game baseballs in all home games during the season.

The anniversary logo has a brick background with a silver number 25 and the years 1992 and 2017. The logo pays homage to both the iconic B&O Warehouse and the original Oriole Park at Camden Yards logo used by the club when the ballpark first opened on April 6, 1992.

Since its opening, Oriole Park has welcomed more than 67 million fans. A popular attraction for visitors to Baltimore, more than 980,000 fans have taken a tour of the venue. During the 2008 season, it became the fastest Major League ballpark to welcome 50 million fans, a record that stood until the San Francisco Giants broke the mark at AT&T Park during the 2015 season.

The Orioles also announced a donation of $25,000 to the Baton Rouge Area Foundation's Louisiana Flood Relief Fund from the team's charitable foundation, in the wake of devastating flooding across the state earlier this year.

The fund helps the lives of those affected by the natural disaster. Since relentless rains fell across Louisiana last August, disastrous flooding has caused terrible damage to homes and businesses, displacing numerous residents throughout the region.
