There's plenty of excitement as the 1st place Orioles get ready to take on the Yankees at Camden Yards.
The stadium will be packed with enthusiastic fans.
But before you yell at the top of your lungs, remember this. It's okay to cheer for your team, but do it carefully, because you could harm your voice.
Doctors say a single yell will either produce a hemorrhage that will go away, or a polyp, or hemorrhagic polyp that may be permanent, unless you have it surgically removed.
So how do you know if you've damaged your vocal cords?
Doctors say you'll start to hear your voice crack a little bit or get raspy.
What can you do to save them? It's recommended you keep quiet, give the cords rest and drink water to keep the cords moist.
If you must cheer, warm up your cords before the game.
