    Performing the national anthem at Oriole Park presents its own set of challenges

    The big "O!" let out by fans at Oriole Park during the singing of "The Star-Spangled Banner" was delivered with extra gusto at a night game on June 14, Flag Day, against division rival Boston Red Sox. The ritualistic shouting of the letter "O" during...
