Orioles honor someone named 'Matt Weiters' with Eutaw Street plaque

Orioles honor someone named 'Matt Weiters' with Eutaw Street plaque

Blasting a home run onto Eutaw Street, just shy of the Warehouse past right field at Camden Yards, is a big deal, akin to a splash landing in McCovey Cove at AT&T; Park. An asphalt landing on Eutaw Street earns players a commemorative plaque along the street with the player’s name, team and the date and distance of the home run.

In the ballpark’s 21-year history, 68 players have accomplished this feat. Only one has had his plaque feature a misspelling.

And it’s a two-time Orioles All-Star, no less.
