About the Baltimore Orioles
Baltimore Orioles Tickets
The Baltimore Orioles are one of the MLB’s oldest franchises. In fact, their roots trace back to the American League’s original 1901 charter, though at that time they were known as the Milwaukee Brewers. The team left Wisconsin for Missouri after their inaugural year, where they spend 52 years as the St. Louis Browns. It wasn’t until 1953 that the Orioles would come home to roost in Baltimore where they belong.
Great Times in Baltimore
After more than half a century playing in different cities, the newly-renamed Orioles had finally found a home for themselves where they could shine. After a few years of team-building, Baltimore roared into the ’60s as major pennant contenders; by 1966, they had walked away with their first ALCS victory – and their first World Series win.
The next 20 years would see the Orioles kicking it up a notch. With future Hall-of-Famers like Cal Ripken, Jr., Eddie Murray, Jim Palmer, Frank Robinson, and Brooks Robinson, the team would go on to rack up a total of six pennant wins, four division championships, and three Word Series out of six appearances.
Tough Times Ahead
All good things come to an end, though, and the Orioles have sure had some tough times in the late ’90s and beyond. Baltimore had a disappointing string of losing seasons from 1998 all the way through 2011 – enough for any Baltimore fan to begin losing faith – but there were some bright spots here and there. The flare that rekindled the Orioles came in 2014 when the team made it to the ALCS for the first time in almost two decades!
Today, the Orioles are still doing their best to build on their revitalized team. There have been setbacks a-plenty, the most recent being a truly abysmal 2018 season, a franchise-worst with only 47 wins and a tremendously huge 115 losses. But if there’s one thing that’s certain, you can’t count this team out just yet. Birds fly back every spring, after all, and the Orioles are no different!
