The Orioles will host the Red Land Little League team from Lewisberry, Pa. at Oriole Park at Camden Yards on Saturday, September 12, prior to the 1:05 p.m. ET game against the Kansas City Royals. Representing the Mid-Atlantic Region in the Little League World Series, Red Land defeated the Southwest Region to win the U.S. title game on August 29, in Williamsport, Pa. The team went 4-1 in the tournament, losing only to Japan in the World Series Championship game on August 30.
During a special pre-game ceremony, the Red Land team will be introduced to the fans in attendance and a video will showcase highlights from their U.S. Championship victory.
Throughout the Little League World Series, several Orioles - including KEVIN GAUSMAN, ADAM JONES, MANNY MACHADO, manager BUCK SHOWALTER, and 2004 Little League World Series Champion JONATHAN SCHOOP -- expressed their strong support of the local team across social media platforms.
