Hailed as one of the pioneers of the game, the Baltimore Orioles were created as a part of the eight charter franchises which gave rise to the MLB in 1901. At that time the club was based in Milwaukee and called the ‘Milwaukee Brewers’. However, the club did not have a great start there and relocated to St. Louis where it was renamed as the St. Louis Browns. As fate would have it, in spite of playing more than half a century in St. Louis, the franchise never really took off.
Third time’s the charm
And so it was that in the winter of 1953 the club was relocated to Baltimore, Maryland. Third time proved to be the charm as the Orioles set about lighting the MLB on fire with their performances. What followed next were two decades of extra-ordinary success for the ‘O’s as during the period from 1964 to 1983 they captured six AL pennants, nine divisional championships and three World Series. In addition to this, the ‘Birds’ also had two wild card berths to the World Series. The players who played for the Orioles during this era of success were recognized at various forums. Five Oriole players were awarded the MVP during this era. Amongst the list of successful winners were Frank Robinson, Brooks Robinson and the legendary Carl Ripken, Jr.
Rising from the ashes
After an unexpected slump in form for the ‘Birds’ which saw them post losing seasons for 14 years consecutively, things took a turn for the better when they made it to the playoffs. However, the icing on the cake was their defeat of the Detroit Tigers for the divisional title in 2014. Oriole fans will be hoping for more of the same in this encounter as well.
