The Baltimore Orioles are already well into their season. But as you may be aware, I haven’t covered the team to this point, as I’ve been rehabilitating from some major health issues – including being a newly diagnosed diabetic. I’m happy to report that I’m doing a lot better, and I so much appreciate anyone who may have thought about me or said a prayer on my behalf the last month-and-a-half or so. Things were hit-or-miss for awhile, but I’m making a full recovery. And I’m excited about resuming what the “new normal” is going to be in my life.
Part of that “new normal” is the “old normal,” meaning covering the Orioles on Birdland Crush. Starting tomorrow, I’ll resume those duties as the O’s welcome the Boston Red Sox into Camden Yards to begin a long homestand. And I’m looking forward to it. I’m still not 100%, but I’m certainly good enough to do “my thing!” I look forward to engaging with folks on twitter and in the comment fields again.
Just a reminder, fans can follow me on twitter for in-game updates, @DomenicVadala. During most games I’ll take you through it all from soup to nuts! And I say it that way because now as a diabetic both soup and nuts are things I’m able to eat!
As I said, tomorrow the O’s open a three-game set with the Boston Red Sox at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. The Birds’ starter is TBD, and Boston’s throwing Rich Hill. Game time is set for just after 7 PM.
