This color is called "Baltimore Oriole". That made more sense than something Yankee related since he didn't become a Yankee.  TR (talk) 03:11, September 15, 2013 (UTC)

How about that, it actually looks a little bit like the Orioles' colors. Not the O's mentioned in the story, of course; the International League team wore black and a very pale orange, and as for the team Mencken once waxed poetic about, I believe the NL of the 1890s was nothing but home whites and road grays.

We can look for a more pale orange if you think that's appropriate. I was able to find the logo for the relevant Orioles, and this color didn't seem too far off. TR (talk) 15:13, September 15, 2013 (UTC)
Oh this is fine. The shade isn't too far off, and of course the name is priceless. Turtle Fan (talk) 15:46, September 15, 2013 (UTC)
