From the Baltimore Orioles: 

In celebration of the 30th anniversary season of The Ballpark That Forever Changed Baseball™, fans can explore historic memorabilia and never-before-seen photos from the last three decades. Fans will also be able to share their own personal history of the ballpark by contributing photos and memories to be displayed in-park and on TV. Members of the Orioles Advocates – a nonprofit organization that has supported the game of baseball for more than 60 years – will serve as docents at the exhibit to help answer questions and direct fans. Nearly 50 items are on display at the exhibit, located on the main concourse behind home plate, including:

  • Script from the 1992 “The Base Ball” event, autographed by James Earl Jones
  • Lineup cards and pitching rubber from Cal Ripken, Jr.’s record-breaking 2,131st game
  • Jesse Orosco signed cleats from August 17, 1999 – the day he broke the Major League record for most games pitched in baseball history (1,072)
  • Cal Ripken, Jr.’s game-worn jersey from October 5, 2001 – his 3,000th career appearance
  • The official scorer’s sheet and game-used second base from the Iron Man’s final game on October 6, 2001
  • Ryan Flaherty, JJ Hardy, and Nick Markakis bats from May 10, 2012, when the trio set an AL record with back-to-back-to-back home runs to lead off the game
  • Final out baseball and champagne bottle from September 16, 2014, when the Orioles beat Toronto 8-2 to clinch AL East title, the team’s first clinch at home since 1969
  • The ball from the 10,000th home run in club history (Tim Beckham on August 3, 2017)
  • Pedro Alvarez’s game-worn jersey from September 18, 2019, when the Orioles became the first professional sports team to wear Braille jerseys in celebration of the Baltimore-based National Federation of the Blind photos of the exhibit
