Kamenetz Declares Thursday “Orange You Pumped?” day in Baltimore County
All County Citizens and Employees Encouraged to Wear Oriole Orange to Work
Towson, MD (September 6, 2012) – Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz may be attending the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, but he is tuned into ESPN, keeping track of Orioles’ late season charge to overcome the Yankees and win the division.
Getting caught up in Oriole Magic, the County Executive declared Thursday, September 6 “Orange You Pumped?” day in Baltimore County. ”I can’t think of a better day to paint the town orange than this Thursday,” said Kamenetz. ”Baltimore County’s resident Iron Man Cal Ripken will have his statue dedicated early that evening and the Orioles will begin a four-game series against the Yankees with a golden opportunity to shock the baseball world. I hope everyone will wear orange to work that day, and I hope that later that night Camden Yards will be a sea of orange. You just have to love Buck and this team. It’s a different hero every night.”
