The Orioles have announced that they will be honoring the UMBC Men's Basketball team in a pregame ceremony at Oriole Park on April 20th.

After the Retrievers made history as the No.16 seed that won against No. 1 seed the University of Virginia in the NCAA, they not only caught the eyes of many, but they made Baltimore proud.

The event is said to be the season's first University Pride Night as they host UMBC. 

UMBC alumni, supporters, and students are invited to take part in the festivities and celebrate the Retrievers.
