Brandon Davis decided he could do without some of his musical equipment.
What he couldn't do without: experiencing an Orioles playoff game.
So the Anne Arundel County native—a 2002 South River High School grad—hocked some of his personal items from his Miami residence in order to catch a flight and land a ticket to see the Orioles play in Game 2 of the American League Division Series Monday in Baltimore.
Davis, 29, and his mother, Edye Stewart, sat about 10 rows off the field along the right field line as the Orioles defeated the Yankees, 3-2.
See the video for more from Stewart and Davis.
Davis is retired from the military. Monday was his first game at Oriole Park at Camden Yards since the 1997 season.
The Orioles carried a similar drought—15 straight seasons without a postseason appearance—before this year.
The wild card winners will travel to New York to continue the best-of-five series on Wednesday.
