No bells or whistles — or the cacophony of slot machines — were needed to create an air of excitement in a ballroom at the Horseshoe Casino Baltimore. The two chairs on a small stage at one end of the room were enough. That's where two former Baltimore Orioles — and Hall of Famers — were seated for an hourlong chat about their experiences during the $200-a-ticket "An Evening with Jim Palmer and ," benefiting the Babe Ruth Birthplace Foundation.
"This is great, great fun. … You get to sit around and get their perspective," said John Moag, the foundation's board chairman. "It's a blast."
"Growing up in Baltimore, this is the place to be tonight," said George Holback, Cho Benn Holback + Associates|Architects principal.
Audience members weren't alone in their enthusiasm.
"Just to be here and be a part of this is wonderful," said Robinson, as he surveyed the room.
