On This Day du Jour

27 years ago today, Queen Elizabeth went to a Baltimore Orioles game!
Elizabeth then shed her gloves, and the 65-year-old British monarch nestled in for her first baseball game. As Oriole pitcher Jeff Ballard prepared to throw the first pitch, Bush announced in the box, 'Oh, here we go.'
The queen occasionally watched the game on a monitor to her right. When there was a close play at the plate, Philip drew his field glasses from a hip case.
And don't worry - of course I found footage of the game!
