The first Orioles home game for fans in more than 500 days had a little bit of everything. There was enough pageantry to make it feel like a traditional Opening Day, even if the season started last week. A little more than 10,000 spectators counts as a sellout during COVID-19 times, and despite Camden Yards operating at 25% capacity there was a good bit of atmosphere. Fans came decked in team colors. They cheered for their favorite players, giving Trey Mancini the loudest ovation in his return to Baltimore after missing last season during his fight against stage 3 colon cancer.
