The St. Louis Browns lost 100 games in 1953, and then packed up and moved to Baltimore. After 52 years in St. Louis, the franchise had amassed just one Pennant, but had placed dead last or second to last an astounding 26 times. The first season in Baltimore wasn’t much better—99 losses and a 57.5 game deficit to the Pennant-winning Indians—but it didn’t take long to improve. The club was contending by the early 1960s, and after acquiring Frank Robinson in 1966 the Orioles were dominating. Earl Weaver managed the club to three consecutive 100-win seasons—in fact, the legendary manager won 100 games five times, something no other manager in team history has done even one time. And beginning in 1966 the Orioles have made 11 trips to the postseason and won eight Division Titles, six Pennants, and three World Series Titles. The club has also produced some of the game’s greatest legends and most memorable moments. And most of them are in this eBook, so step up and test your knowledge with these hardball questions about your favorite team—all the sluggers, hurlers, and greatest moments in Baltimore Orioles history … 51 questions to challenge the diehard Orioles fan.
