Billy Joel will be the first musician to play a concert at Camden Yards
Earlier this winter, the Phillies announced that Billy Joel would play a concert at Citizens Bank Park in May, marking the sixth consecutive year the stadium would host the pianist and his fans. But, Citizens Bank Park won't be the only East Coast ballpark Joel visits during the 2019 season.
On Thursday, the Orioles announced that he will become the first musician to ever play a concert at Camden Yards when he stops by Baltimore in July:

Luckily, Orioles Season Plan Members will have pre-sale access to concert tickets, allowing them to potentially enjoy one more summer evening at the ballpark.
To mark this historic moment, the Orioles and Oriole Bird decided to make a locker for Joel, complete with a custom jersey featuring his full name, for some reason:
It seems unlikely that Joel will sport this jersey when he takes the field -- or, stage -- at Camden Yards in July. But, at least he'll have it as a souvenir or to wear whenever he watches the Orioles.
