Baltimore Orioles pitcher Darren O’Day and his wife, Fox News reporter Elizabeth Prann, presented a check for $23,463 to the USO during a ceremony on Thursday. The funds were raised during a Barbecue for the Troops event the couple held for the USO at Oriole Park at Camden Yards on Aug. 4.

The August event featured a bullpen picnic-area barbeque that included a silent auction featuring many one-of-a-kind items provided and autographed by Orioles players. The Orioles also auctioned off the special Stars and Stripes hats the players wore during the team’s July 4 game against the Texas Rangers.

And to top it off, the Orioles  donated 50 tickets to USO Metro for Thursday night’s game so that local troops and their families could enjoy a night at the ballpark.
