Orioles to celebrate 60th anniversary in 2014
Jerseys to feature patch on right sleeve; activities to be announced next month
BALTIMORE -- The Orioles will wear a commemorative patch on the right sleeve of all game jerseys for their 60th anniversary season in 2014.
The patch was unveiled on the club's Twitter account on Monday, and it uses the 1954 Orioles script and the '54 bird as well as the current Oriole bird. The three stars at the bottom represent the organization's three World Series championships.
The O's have not announced celebration plans for their 60th anniversary season, although those are expected to be unveiled in December.
It will mark the fourth consecutive season the club has worn a patch on the right sleeve, with last season's honoring the late Earl Weaver.
