    Show your Orioles pride, Maryland state employees -- the governor wants you to wear orange to work through the playoffs.

    Governor Martin O'Malley has declared Thursday "O's Orange Day" in Maryland, and encouraged Maryland state government employees to wear orange.

    O'Malley's declaration calls the Os "a Maryland tradition like Old Bay, crabs, and the Star Spangled Banner."

    For the first time in twenty years, the Baltimore Orioles won the American League East division championship. Finishing the regular season with a 96-66 record, the team will face the Detroit Tigers in the American League East Division Playoffs beginning Thursday.

    The first pitch is at 5:37 p.m. and the game will be televised on TBS.

    Governor O'Malley declared that Orioles fans all over the state of Maryland will "have black and orange fever and will support our high-flying Birds throughout their 2014 playoff run."
