Former Baltimore Oriole Mike Bordick and U.S. Olympic figure skater Kimmie Meissner have been added to the lineup for the event, which runs from 5:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
“We are pleased to welcome these special guests to Babe’s Birthday Bash,” said Mike Gibbons, Executive Director of the Babe Ruth Birthplace Foundation. “Each of them has been a great supporter of the Babe Ruth Birthplace Foundation, and we are excited they will be joining us as we celebrate the 120th anniversary of Ruth’s birth in Baltimore.”
In addition to Jordan, Bordick and Meissner, fans will have the chance to mingle with numerous Baltimore Colts legends, including: Bruce Laird, who spent 12-seasons in the NFL, primarily as a defensive back/strong safety for the Colts (1972-1981); Tom Matte, former Colts running back and Super Bowl V Champion (1961-1972); where he posted career stats of 4,646 rushing yards, 249 receptions for 2,869 yards, 1,367 yards returning kickoffs, and 57 touchdowns; fellow Colts teammate and Super Bowl V Champion, Rick Volk (1967-1975); and Stan White (1972-1979), who holds the single-season record for interceptions by a linebacker (8), and is still involved with Baltimore sports as a WBAL Radio broadcaster and Baltimore Ravens’ game-day color commentator.
