The Orioles today announced details for a new Player-Designed T-Shirt Series featuring personalized graphics and themes created by Orioles players. The series will feature five different Orioles players including ZACH BRITTON (May 30), BUD NORRIS (June 30), and J.J. HARDY (July 30). The Orioles will announce the players and designs for the August 19 and September 30 giveaways at a later date.
On May 30 when the Orioles host the Tampa Bay Rays at 4:05 p.m., all fans will receive a "Rock the Yard" t-shirt designed by Orioles closer ZACH BRITTON. The design captures Britton's entrance song, For Those About To Rock by AC/DC, with a guitar, the Oriole Bird logo, and Britton's signature.
The second t-shirt in the five-part series was designed by Orioles starter BUD NORRIS and will be given to all fans on June 30 when the Orioles host the Texas Rangers at 7:05 p.m. The design captures Norris' pride in his adopted hometown and includes a graphic of Oriole Park at Camden Yards and a portion of the Baltimore skyline, Norris' signature, and the caption "My Home. My Team."
On July 30, when the Detroit Tigers visit the Orioles, the t-shirt series will celebrate Orioles shortstop J.J. HARDY's defensive prowess, as all fans will receive a t-shirt with a design depicting a drawing of a glove with a ball featuring Hardy's signature.
