For first time in 3 years, MASN’s Kevin Brown calls an Orioles road game in person: ‘Overwhelmed with gratitude’

It hadn’t been so easy in past years, when Brown called games off television monitors at Camden Yards even with the team on the road. And entering 2022, the Orioles and Nationals — which both air on the Orioles-owned MASN — were the lone sets of commentators still doing virtual broadcasts.

But at 8:30 Monday night, Brown received a call from Adam Martiyan, a coordinating producer at MASN, telling him to pack a bag. It was an unexpected turn of events. For Brown, though, in his first year as the Orioles’ lead play-by-play broadcaster, the prospect of calling his first in-person road game in three years was made more special by the location of that road game, where the Long Island native used to come to games with his father.

Major League Baseball has a lightning problem, study shows

During a night when every Major League Baseball team is in action, odds are that lightning activity is unsafely close to at least one of its stadiums, a recent study found.

Talk about a wide strike zone.

A homemade strike zone and his own field of dreams: How Grayson Rodriguez became a prodigy and the Orioles’ top pitching prospect

Gilbert…had identified the ideal plot of land — a gentle slope on the family’s 13-acre property — and now needed to meld that land into something usable. The brush went first, clearing the dirt of brambles and thickets.

And then in that tractor, Gilbert began leveling the ground, cutting into the slope to flatten the grade. He threw grass seed down, crafted some baselines, placed bags and molded a mound…

It would become much in the next few years, when Gilbert added a fence about 200 feet to center field. As Grayson grew older and better, the field on the family’s property about 2 miles from their house improved, too. The baselines were stretched to 90 feet, the mound pushed back to 60 feet, 6 inches, a backstop appeared and benches were made.

Camden Yards to test using artificial intelligence for security at some Orioles games this season

..you might become a test subject for a new security technology that uses low-energy radar with 3D imaging and artificial intelligence to detect hidden threats.

The unobtrusive system could ease and speed up security checks at the ballpark, reducing the need for emptying pockets at metal detectors, bag checks and pat-downs…
