The Orioles unveiled their 25th anniversary logo for Camden Yards, to be featured on jersey sleeves and balls.

The Orioles on Friday unveiled the logo that will be used next year to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Camden Yards.

Next season, the team will wear the diamond patch on its jersey sleeve and have it imprinted on all of their baseballs at the ballpark. The logo features a silver “25” over a brick background, a nod to the warehouse that towers over the field in right field, with an orange trim.

The logo was previously featured on the 2017 schedule that the team unveiled in September, but was formally announced this week.

Opened in 1992, Camden Yards is largely seen as a model for a modern ballpark, with its integration into the city and pleasing design still making it considered one of the best parks in America 25 years later.

Traditionally, the team has its circular, Maryland flag-themed logo on the left shoulder, leaving the right for commemorative patches such as this. In 2014, that meant the team’s 60th anniversary patch and a tribute to minority owner Tom Clancy. In 2013, it was an orange “4” patch in honor of former manager Earl Weaver.
