One-day rain delay out of the way, and the 2023 Baltimore Orioles took the field on Opening Day at Camden Yards against division rival New York Yankees.

Originally scheduled for Thursday, Orioles fans waited an extra day to watch the beginning of baseball season in Baltimore under still-cloudy skies.

The weather did not dampen the spirits as die-hard O’s fans “I’m really confident the O’s are going to get the W, go O’s go O’s go O’s!” says Anna Goberdhan.
