BALTIMORE – The weather was more appropriate for a football game, with temperatures dipping into the 40s under an overcast sky.
Even if it was snowing, nothing was going to keep Orioles fans from showing up at Camden Yards on Sunday for the first baseball playoff game in Baltimore since 1997.
After 14 straight losing seasons, the Orioles pulled off a stunning reversal by winning 93 games to earn a wild-card berth. Then, after beating Texas 5-1 on Friday, Baltimore returned home to host the New York Yankees in Game 1 of the AL division series.
