A portion of each ticket sold will benefit the Baltimore Humane Society. Ticket packages for this event are sold out.

MYCHAL GIVENS TO RECEIVE THE ORIOLE WAY AWARD

The Oriole Advocates will honor Orioles pitcher MYCHAL GIVENS, the recipient of the 2019 Oriole Way Award, during an on-field ceremony prior to Wednesday’s game. The Oriole Advocates, with the support of the Baltimore Orioles, created the Oriole Way Award to recognize a member of the Orioles who has made significant contributions both on and off the field and who has demonstrated a sincere desire to serve the community. The award is presented annually to an Oriole whose participation in the community also embraces the Oriole Advocates’ mission of promoting and stimulating interest in baseball. Since making his Major League debut with the Orioles in 2015, Givens has been active with the Orioles RBI Program, the Orioles Military Appreciation Program, the Baltimore Animal Rescue & Care Shelter, Inc. and the Orioles Pet Calendar, along with his own foundation, the Givens Back Foundation.

Dachille, who has been with WBAL for over 15 years, has been courageously fighting Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH), a rare but treatable form of cancer. His upbeat personality, humor, and positivity in challenging times continues to inspire colleagues and local media.
