Baltimore Orioles 1954: Tribute to the Orioles at Memorial Stadium

Source: Baltimore Orioles 1954: Memorial Stadium Tribute


The Orioles in their first 10 seasons or so weren't very good at all, but by 1964 or 1965, they not only started winning but also became solid American League contenders and in 1966 not only won the American League but also their first World Series, a 4-0 sweep of the Los Angeles Dodgers. And after that, up until 1986, you are talking about the winningest franchise in baseball, which included a total of three World Series championships, six American League championships, and seven AL East titles. Those are the Orioles at Baltimore Memorial Stadium that I love and respect and have been hoping will get back to that consistent winning ever since they started sliding in the late 1980s.
