Baltimore Orioles to Recognize Childhood Cancer Awareness Day

For the fifth consecutive year, the Baltimore Orioles will join the rest of Major League Baseball in recognizing Childhood Cancer Awareness Day on Saturday, September 5, as they host the New York Yankees at 7:35 p.m. ET. During Saturday’s game, Orioles players and coaches will wear special gold chest decals and the bases will have special gold jewels, to raise awareness for childhood cancer. The evening’s broadcast talent will also wear gold ribbon pins, and childhood cancer awareness graphics will be digitally displayed on the Warehouse through the MASN broadcast for fans at home.

As part of the pregame festivities, the Orioles will welcome Baltimore-native Andrew Lowman, a 7-year-old patient from Johns Hopkins Children’s Hospital to throw out the ceremonial first pitch. Orioles Pitcher David Hess also hosted a virtual meet-and-greet with pediatric cancer patients from Johns Hopkins Children’s Hospital.

In collaboration with MLB and the Starlight Children’s Foundation, the Orioles have donated 100 Starlight Gowns to the University of Maryland Children’s Hospital, the second consecutive year that the Orioles have been able to do so. The Starlight Gowns, which replace traditional hospital garments with high-quality, comfortable, and brightly colored gowns for children undergoing cancer treatment, are adorned with Orioles logos and colors.
