Orioles catcher Matt Wieters will have his high school baseball jersey retired Monday night in a ceremony at Stratford High School in Goose Creek, S.C.
Wieters is one of two major leaguers who will have his jersey retired during a 7 p.m. ceremony, along with first baseman Justin Smoak, who recently joined the Toronto Blue Jays.
Wieters and Smoak played together in high school -- Wieters was one year ahead of Smoak -- and both were first-round picks out of college. Wieters was the fifth overall selection by the Orioles in 2007 from Georgia Tech, while Smoak was the 11th overall choice by the Texas Rangers in 2008 out of South Carolina.
Wieters, 28, has spent six seasons with the Orioles. He is a two-time Gold Glover and three-time All-Star. Limited to 26 games in 2014 because of a torn ligament in his elbow that led to Tommy John surgery, Wieters hopes to be back playing with the Orioles around Opening Day.
