The Orioles today announced that INF JIMMY PAREDES will appear at the Official Orioles Team Store at the York Galleria (2899 Whiteford Rd.) in York, PA to sign autographs and greet fans on Monday, June 29, from 11 a.m. to noon. Additionally, longtime Baltimore sportswriter JIM HENNEMAN will be on hand to sign copies of "Baltimore Orioles: 60 Years of Orioles Magic." The event is free of charge and open to the public.
Paredes currently ranks fifth among American League competitors with a .311 (66-212) batting average, ranks first in the majors with a .455 (20-44) batting average with runners in scoring position, and has set single-season career-highs in doubles (nine), home runs (eight), and RBI (34) this season.
Beginning with the return of Major League Baseball to Charm City and encompassing the team's 2014 American League East Division title and postseason run, "Baltimore Orioles: 60 Years of Orioles Magic" captures the club's iconic moments across the past six decades. The book is highlighted by the writing of Henneman, a foreword written by Orioles Legend and Hall of Famer JIM PALMER, more than 300 photographs, including numerous never-before released images, and unique, re-printed historical documents.
Fans can purchase the Orioles official legacy book at the signing for $50. Books are also available for purchase online at www.orioles.com/book or at the Official Orioles Team Stores at Oriole Park at Camden Yards and the York Galleria.
