Named after the Maryland official state bird, Baltimore Orioles are Baltimore based professional baseball team. Being the pioneer member of American League it spent a year in Milwaukee, Wisconsin as a major league club before moving to St. Louis. The team moved to Baltimore, after it spent almost 52 years in St. Louis, thus titled as Baltimore Orioles. The name has previously been used by some of the major baseball league clubs including The New York Yankees.
The black and orange hues have always had an unbreakable spell on the baseball fans as the team has displayed immense success from 1964 till 1983; they won Divisional Championships seven times, three times World Championships and the title of Most Valuable Player Award for five times. With such exquisite start, Orioles led the American League in home runs and batting average. Notable Hall of Famers like Jim Palmer, Brooks Robinson and Frank Robinson ruled the team in their first World Championship in the era of 60s. Other prominent names produced by the team were Rick Dempsey, Cal Ripken Jr. and Blue Jays. Opened in 1922, Oriole Park at Camden Yards is rated as a triumphant arena by the team.
The history has shown that as the teams relocate themselves, they retain their nick names to display their affection with the past. But St. Louis Browns or the present day Baltimore Orioles has not only changed their nick name but to distract themselves from the past they even traded almost 17 players with New York Yankees. The Browns in 1930s sold almost 20,000 shares to the public thus making it a history that any other team never dared to perform till date.
The glorious success of Baltimore Orioles for two decades not only produced unbeatable players but also reared talented coaches too. The glorious twenty years from 60s till 80s proved to be lucky ones as Orioles gave unbeatable eighteen winning seasons in a row. A unified team thus created records and left the rest far behind. During this productive time, Orioles won the most prestigious title of MVP. Even the pitching staff worked wonders and they were also awarded with the title of Cy Young Awards. The shinning era came to an end after the Hall of Fame Pitcher and the back bone of the team, Jim Palmer retired. Not only Jim’s retirement brought Orioles a bit down the pedestal, but their divisional rival Detroit Tigers also performed enormously well thus bringing down the havoc created by Orioles for some time. Although rise and fall is always the part of the show, the teams are always remembered for their discipline, hard work and sportsman spirit that are displayed in the field.
Several key players joined Baltimore Orioles as Pat Gillick became the general manager of the team. The premium players included B.J. Surhoff, David Wells and Randy Myers. Thus the team returned to the playoffs after their absence from the team for twelve years. Cal Ripken Jr. achieved hit 3000th hit and thus retired his number 8 before his final home game of the season. The team saw a series of rise and falls during Cal Ripken’s era which is part of the making of Baltimore Orioles that presently exists. With the trademark colors of orange and black, Orioles have outshined the rest of the teams and are still remembered for their glorious achievements in the past.
