On Saturday, August 25, the Orioles and Oriole Advocates will hold a formal induction ceremony prior to their 7:05 p.m. game with the Toronto Blue Jays to honor 2012 Orioles Hall of Fame inductees Mike Mussina and Rich Dauer and Herb Armstrong Award recipient Walter Youse. Fans are encouraged to be in their seats by 6:30 p.m.

In his 10 seasons as a starting pitcher with the Orioles, Mussina compiled 147 wins and a 3.53 ERA, pitching more than 200 innings seven times. He will become the 50th inductee into the Orioles Hall of Fame.

A second baseman, Dauer spent all 10 seasons in the majors with the Orioles and accumulated a .985 career fielding percentage. He was a part of the World Series championship team in 1983. Dauer will become the 51st inductee into the Orioles Hall of Fame.

Youse played a pivotal role in Baltimore baseball as an amateur coach before becoming a full-time scout with the Orioles in 1959. He passed away on April 15, 2002 at the age of 88. Youse will receive the Herb Armstrong Award, given to non-uniformed personnel for distinguished service to the Orioles and the game of baseball.

The annual Orioles Hall of Fame Luncheon was held Friday to honor Mussina, Dauer and Youse.
