BALTIMORE - After a well-deserved day off the Orioles are set for their final home series tonight against the Boston Red Sox.
And for the first time in more than a decade -- the O's are looking to play a little longer into the month of October.
The O’s are leading the wild card race and are on the doorstep of its first divisional win since 1997.
They’re one game back of Yankees AL East, and one game up on A's for first wild card spot.
On Saturday there will be a Brooks Robinson statue unveiling. The ceremony will start around 5 pm on the concourse. There will be a field presentation before first pitch at 7:05.
For fan appreciation weekend, students with IDs can get discounted tickets to the upper deck. There will also be fireworks.
