O's to don Braille uniforms on September 18

The Baltimore Orioles will become the first American professional sports team to wear Braille lettering on their uniforms when they host the Toronto Blue Jays at Camden Yards on Sept. 18.

The themed uniforms will be part of the team’s National Federation of the Blind Night promotion as the traditional “Orioles” script on the club’s white home jerseys will be replaced with Braille.

The themed night will honor the 40th anniversary of the Federation moving its headquarters to Baltimore.

The team will auction the jerseys, which will be autographed, to the public, with proceeds going to the National Federation of the Blind.
