BALTIMORE — There's nothing more rewarding than a smile on a child's face.

On Wednesday, umpires working the Orioles'-National's game series helped make that happen.

They visited kids at Johns Hopkins Children's Center for a Build-a-Bear workshop. Umpires helped kids stuff their own animals, complete with bear-sized Orioles uniforms.

This event was made possible by UMPS Care Charities, a non-profit funded by MLB umpires to enrich the lives of at-risk youth and children coping with serious illness.

As for the Orioles, their series wraps up with the Nationals tonight.

Ravens Quarterback Lamar Jackson will throw out the first pitch.
