We haven't measured, but the Orioles might be the MLB team with a fan living furthest away from the team's home stadium. That fan would be astronaut Terry Virts, who is currently living on the International Space Station.

When asked by Baltimore Fox45's Candace Dold if he had a message for the Orioles, Virts responded:

"I would say 'Go O's! … It's been so much fun being an Orioles fan the last few years with Buck and all the great players that we have and there's lots and lots of fans out there -- we're very proud of what you've done. Last year was great, but we're really looking forward to winning that last game of the year at the end of October."
