When the Orioles announced their promotions and giveaways for the season, there were a lot of generic t-shirt giveaway dates that were to be filled in later. Tuesday afternoon proved to be the later and it's actually kind of cool. The O's will be giving away t-shirts hat were designed with input from specific players, starting with a May 30 t-shirt giveaway designed by closer Zach Britton.
Other dates in the series are as follows: June 30, July 30, August 19, September 30. One of these things is not like the other. The Orioles are on the road on August 30, so the pattern is broken. That's too bad.
The June 30 shirt giveaway is designed by Bud Norris. July's giveaway has been designed by shortstop J.J. Hardy. The particular players and shirt designs for the other two dates are to be announced later on in the season.
The Orioles posted some pictures of the shirts they've already designed to the team Twitter account:
You may recall that Britton uses AC/DC's "For Those About To Rock" as his entrance song and the inspiration of that on the shirt design is plain.
This one is not quite as personalized as Britton's, but nonetheless that's a cool picture of the stadium with parts of the city skyline in the background.
At the rate we're going here, the September 30 giveaway will be a plain orange t-shirt with some player's signature on it in white and that will be it. No, that's a joke. This is a nice, simple shirt design, and Hardy certainly earned those Gold Gloves.
Who would you like to see design the remaining two shirts? What's your ideal shirt design for those players?
