The Orioles became the first professional sports team to wear Braille jerseys

The Orioles hosted the Blue Jays for a regular, regular-season game on Tuesday night. Camden Yards looked as beautiful as always, fans were munching on crab dip and waffle fries and baseball players were playing baseball.

But there was one cool, new added element to the uniforms of the home team. The Orioles had their team and player names spelled out in Braille—becoming the first team in professional sports history to do so.

Fans were also given Braille alphabet cards so they could spell out their favorite players.
