All clouds possess a silver lining
The Orioles and most of the teams across the Northeast have endured some pretty terrible weather over the first two months of the season.
But, no team may be affected by poor weather as much as the Orioles. As a power-hitting team, the Orioles rely on the home run for a large percentage (nearly half) of their offense.
But, Camden Yards is not a hitter’s paradise until the weather heats up. When the weather heats up, the ball carries further, and the park plays completely different. But, when it is cool and damp, balls often die in the outfield or are blown in.
After beautiful weather for the weekend games, Tuesday will be another lovely evening, albeit cooler in Baltimore than it was for the weekend games with highs in the mid-to-upper 70s. Wednesday will be cooler yet, with highs near 70 and a chance of showers. However, it should not be anything that causes the game to be canceled, although if there are some thunderstorms, it could lead to a rain delay.
The weather is set to turn toward a more summer-like feel for next week, just in time for the Orioles to head to the Midwest and face the Chicago White Sox for four.
