Orioles announce 'Magic Moment' contest, 60th anniversary page on website

The Orioles unveiled a special page on their website Thursday to coincide with the yearlong 60th anniversary celebration of the team's move to Baltimore in 1954.

A key part of the new page, which can be found here, is a video contest called "My Orioles Magic Moment," which invites fans to recreate some of the top moments in team history.

In the first contest, the Orioles ask fans to submit videos of themselves doing impressions of Doug DeCinces' famous "Oriole Magic" home run on June 22, 1979. The first entry period starts today and ends Jan. 27 at noon.

Orioles staff members will then judge the entries, according to the team, and select the winner based on creativity and relevance to the contest theme. Fans should visit the Orioles website for a list of rules and to view the videos.

A new "My Orioles Magic Moment" will be revealed at the beginning of each month through September. The team also asks fans to share their videos on social media using the hashtag #MyOsMagic.

The Orioles will select one video for each entry period (nine winners total). According to the team, each winner will receive a prize package that includes four lower level tickets to an Orioles home game and an official 60th anniversary baseball autographed by an Orioles player.

The winner's video will also be featured on the anniversary site and promoted throughout the Orioles' social media platforms, the team said.

Other features of the Orioles' new 60th anniversary page include: team media guides from 1954 to 2013, the Orioles' all-time roster and more.

The Orioles said they'll update the page with more content throughout the year.
