1981 Rochester Red Wings vs The Baltimore Orioles

I picked this up the other day at the shop I work in, and I thought it may be of interest to some of our Baseball collectors.

The Ball is marked 1981 Baltimore Orioles, but half the signatures just did not fit. It took a bit of digging and searching but it all made perfect sense when I found a couple of youtube videos about the Exhibition Game the O's held every year pitting the Major League Franchise against its AAA club.

    From what I can tell, the youngster on the field was Rochester's hero for the day some kid named Cal Ripken Jr. 

Some of the Orioles that have also signed are Eddie Murray, Lenn Sakata, Rick Dempsey and Tippy Martinez. 

Not in the greatest shape but a pretty cool item for any fan of Baseball's Iron Man, snagging a signed ball from when he was just an Iron Kid.

My brother-in-law and I were at that game I have the program for it somewhere buried deep no doubt.
