The Baltimore Orioles are going retro in 2012, bringing back the cartoon bird for their caps as part of a uniform change for the upcoming season.
The new cartoon bird head utilizes elements from the 1970 and 1983 versions. The home cap will feature the bird head on a white front panel with a black back and orange bill and button. The road caps will feature the bird on black with an orange bill and button.
For the first time since the 1992 season, the Orioles will wear an orange jersey for select home games. The Orioles will continue to wear black jerseys for Friday home games and will wear the orange jerseys on Saturdays.
Also, each jersey will feature a patch to mark the 20th anniversary of Camden Yards.
