Johan Santana Card

May 25, 2014

Pirates Fedora

April 29, 2014

After losing two of three to the Kansas City Royals, the Orioles are preparing to square off in a two-game, interleague set with the Pittsburgh Pirates. It's BUCKle Up versus Buccos in Baltimore (weather permitting, of course).

The common thread that runs through these five games is fedoras. Yes, fedoras.
