On a rainy and drizzling day the Baltimore Orioles launched their home campaign by taking on the Toronto Blue Jays. Though the weather was inhospitable the fans still came out to cheer on their team as expectations ran high following the great 2014 season where the O’s won the American League East pennant. Alas the weather wasn’t the only thing that didn’t cooperate as the home team lost, but hope springs eternal as there is a lot of baseball yet to be played.
