Mo Gaba Day - July 28 vs. Rays
In recognition of the tremendous impact Orioles Hall of Famer Mo Gaba had on the Orioles, fans are invited to celebrate the inaugural “Mo Gaba Day” at Oriole Park on the Thursday, July 28, as the team hosts the Tampa Bay Rays at 12:35 p.m. ET.
Gaba, the late 14-year-old Orioles superfan, was elected to the Orioles Hall of Fame in 2020, just a day before his untimely passing. He was the second recipient of The Wild Bill Hagy Award as one of the most passionate and devoted fans in franchise history. Gaba, who endured four different battles with cancer and lost his eyesight prior to his passing, began calling in to local sports radio programming in 2015 at the age of nine to share his knowledge of Baltimore sports, and his infectious laughter and enthusiasm quickly captured the hearts of local sports fans. Gaba was a friend to all, and established relationships with Orioles and Ravens players alike, becoming a staple in the Baltimore sports community.
