Buck Showalter, D.B. is giving your kid permission to skip school

Orange fever is a lot better than yellow fever or scarlet fever. For one, you don't actually get sick. And you get to watch the Orioles fight for a playoff spot in September.

Baltimore tweeted out this doctor's note so anyone affected by the rapidly spreading "ailment" can miss school or work to attend Thursday's 12:35 matinee against the Rays at Camden Yards.

Hey, Buck Showalter is a doctor (of baseball). You have to listen to him!
