Andrew Syropoulos is a native Baltimorean and graduated from the Baltimore School for the Arts early in the millennium.

The Orioles are his first sports love and Camden Yards is his summer home, which he loves to show off giving his own impromptu tours of OPACY to people who have never been. He has had season tickets for four years in Section 84. If he’s not there for a game, he’s listening on the radio or watching MASN with his 2 year-old shepherd-lab mix, Wieters.

Austin is Baltimore born and bred. At 16, he is a huge sports fan, with baseball and the Orioles at the top of the list.

The Terps and Ravens are next on his list of favorite sports teams. Highlights of his fandom include standing in the RF flag court for Game 2 of the 2012 ALDS (Orioles vs Yankees), sitting ten rows back right by first base for the Orioles' AL East Clinching Win in 2014, and sitting in the CF bleachers for Delmon Young's historic double in the 2014 ALDS against the Tigers.

As a Maryland native, I always loved the Orioles but after 18 years of living in the Old Line State I moved away for college and didn't return. Not being able to attend games was rough, so I searched for an outlet to connect with the O's. As someone who loves numbers, I naturally found a hobby in searching for weird and impressive Orioles stats. If you want join-in on the fun, follow me on Twitter at @BirdlandStats.

Charlie was born and raised in Baltimore. A self-described “sports junky” Charlie follows all four of the major sports (football, baseball, basketball, hockey) and tries to keep his rooting interests as local as possible (Ravens, Orioles, Wizards, Capitals). It’s hard to sum up his feelings for Baltimore, but one quote stands out from The Rum Diary by Hunter S. Thompson: "Old God sure was in a good mood when he made this place."

Occasionally, the entire Eutaw Street Report staff will contribute to a post. These are usually instant reactions to news, signings, big games, etc. It's like sitting at the bar and hearing the news/watching the game with us!
Geno Rodriguez is lifelong Baltimore resident and sports fan. He was born a diehard O’s fan and will certainly die as one. His love for the Orioles dates back to his childhood when he would catch two buses across Baltimore City to Memorial Stadium to watch the O’s play. His defining moment as fan came when he was pie’d by Adam Jones after the O’s clinched the AL East in 2014. He is equally as passionate about the Ravens. He emotionally invests himself in every game that either team plays. The only thing that brings him more happiness is watching his talented son play baseball. When he is not watching Baltimore sports, he is selling Baltimore real estate. Find Geno on Twitter at @GenoRodriguez19
Born and raised in the Baltimore area, I've followed the Orioles for as long as I can remember. If I'm not at Oriole Park at Camden Yards I can probably be found in front of the television watching them on MASN. I've had the opportunity to contribute to various online sports sites, both independent as well as associated with larger networks, and have have been featured on FOX Sports, MSN, Huffington Post, and Yardbarker, among others. Thanks to Eutaw Street Report and Russell Street Report I'm now able to share my thoughts and views on Baltimore's birds with you. Follow me on Twitter @GDixon410.

In 2012, he moved to Columbia, SC for another gig in radio, where he currently resides with his wife, Nicole, and their two daughters.

He routinely gets back to Baltimore for a Ravens game once a year, and while living in Maine, went to Foxboro and Fenway whenever the Ravens or Orioles came to town. A couple of his highlights were being at the final game at Baltimore’s Memorial Stadium, and also sitting in left field for “2130”, and “2131” (Cal Ripken’s consecutive game streak).

Now residing in Canton, Maryland, he is an Orioles season-ticket holder in the "friendly" confines of Section 82.
Originally from Gaithersburg, MD, Joel Katz is a diehard O’s fan living in London – or as he likes to call it #BirdlandUK. A lifelong fan, some of his best childhood memories are watching games at Camden Yards. Joel graduated from Washington & Lee University and his love of the O’s only grew larger in adulthood. The rise of MLB’s media business has allowed Joel to watch nearly every game while living ~3,500+ miles from home. Whenever he’s at the ballpark watching the Orioles play, Joel can typically be found in his vintage #3 Harold Baines jersey or his #25 Hyun-Soo Kim jersey. You can follow Joel on twitter @RationalOriole.
Jonathan French was born and raised in Augusta, ME and currently resides in Hallowell, ME.

He's been to multiple Orioles games both at Fenway Park and at Oriole Park at Camden Yards over the years and founded his own site, Orioles Anonymous, in December 2010.

Megan grew up & lived in Pennsylvania until 2012, when she decided to be a permanent Maryland resident to match her love of Maryland sports. While she loves the Ravens, her life pretty much revolves around the Orioles & baseball.

Follow Megan on Twitter @asianmegan.
