I love Baltimore Memorial Stadium, but the last few years of Memorial Stadium for baseball, let's say 1986-91, were pretty bad for the Orioles, except for 1989. The Orioles had five losing seasons in that period and lost 90 or more games four times and set the modern American League record for losses in 1988, with 108, including losing their first 21 games of that season. Yet there were still great moments and Oriole games in this period, especially in 1989, when they went from last to second in the American league, finishing just one game out of the AL East race.
