Not too long ago, wearing Orioles gear around was something that invited pity as much as anything else. Marking yourself as the kind of person who stuck with a team that won 47, 52, or 54 games in a season brings about more patronizing sympathy - “You guys will be good again some time” - than it does derision. The 2022 Orioles blew away all of this stuff. Things can be fun again.
That makes now a perfect time to get some new Orioles stuff to wear around this town or any other. Along with the winning atmosphere has come all sorts of trappings of fun baseball, the sort we haven’t seen since the days of Adam Jones’s post-game pies. We can only hope that all of the fun stuff like Adley Rutschman’s post-game hugs and Félix Bautista’s new The Wire-inspired entrance will carry over into this year.
Thanks to our partners at BreakingT, you can celebrate some of these rituals yourself with some cool, fresh shirts. At least one of these (“Chaos”) is regularly worn by Orioles players in the clubhouse and more than one can be found in the Orioles team store for more money than you’d pay to buy it directly.
If you’re looking to add something other than yet another shirsey to your Orioles wardrobe, consider some of these - and if you like the look of them, please consider supporting your hard-working Camden Chat manager (i.e. me) by purchasing through these links below.
Fresh off the presses for 2023 are designs celebrating the plethora of prospects that have been cracking top 100 lists in the early months of this year. But let’s not forget about the players who are here already, either, with shirts for Rutschman, Gunnar Henderson, and Ryan Mountcastle ready to go to anyone who wants to proclaim their allegiance for those guys.
If you’re still looking for more, you can check out the entire collection on BreakingT.
