More Ravens related than Orioles, so I'll put it here:

Hall of Fame baseball player Rod Carew underwent a heart transplant in December, receiving the organ donation from a former Baltimore Ravens tight end, according to the team's website.

 

Konrad Reuland died Dec. 12 at age 29 after suffering a brain aneurysm. His heart went to Carew, who was at the top of the donor list after dealing with life-threatening complications from a heart attack he initially sustained a year earlier.

 

Three months later, Carew met Reuland's mother. According to the team's website, Mary Reuland greeted Carew with a big hug and said, "You're part of our family now."
