Southwest, which has partnered with the Orioles for the past 10 years and is the team's official airline, says the players and bird will be making gate announcements, boarding planes to welcome folks to Baltimore and even directing a plane into one of the Southwest's gates at BWI." Maybe one of the Southwest employees can play short stop tonight. Can't possible have a lower batting average than the one we're currently employing.
