    Hi, I am Sonya and I was one of the callers on todays show. I forgot to mention that kudos to the Orioles for allowing Poly to play its baseball game against Digital Harbor at Camden Yards Stadium on Friday April 16, 2010 at 3:45pm. I think that the Orioles are trying to do something positive for the inner city schools.
