In an effort to minimize the level of inconvenience for Orioles fans and Baltimore Grand Prix planners, the Orioles, in conjunction with Major League Baseball, have moved the start time of their September 1 game against the Toronto Blue Jays from 7:05 p.m. to 12:35 p.m.
Hardy passes physical, making extension official with #orioles - 3 years at 22.25 mill. Includes 8 team no trade.
Just a reminder that the Futures Game is being played starting now on ESPN2. Jonathan Schoop is on the World Team and Manny Machado is on the US Team.
Schoop isn't in the starting lineup for the world, but Machado will start for the US team at shortstop.
