Orioles to release season highlight DVD (plus note on Duquette)
The Orioles announced plans Friday to release a season highlight DVD titled “The BUCKle Up Birds: An Underdog Story” in mid-January 2013. The DVD chronicles the best moments of 2012, from the club’s off-season moves through the organization’s first postseason appearance in 15 years.
The DVD, which is being produced in house by the award-winning Orioles Productions, will include both in-game footage and off-field interviews of key moments throughout the year, from dramatic wins to each of the six Orioles Legends Celebration Series unveilings. Additional bonus content includes footage from the Orioles’ post-game Wild Card celebration.
The expected ship date for “The BUCKle Up Birds” is mid-January, but fans may pre-order the DVD now at www.orioles.com/buckleup for $25, including shipping and handling. The DVD will also be shown and made available for purchase at Orioles FanFest on January 19, 2013 at the Baltimore Convention Center.
A 60-second trailer for the upcoming release can be seen now at www.orioles.com/buckleup. Fans are encouraged to tweet their review of the coming attraction by using the hashtag #BUCKleUp.
