Baltimore Orioles

One of baseball’s trio of teams named after cute little songbirds (along with the St. Louis Cardinals and Toronto Blue Jays), the Baltimore Orioles, bizarrely, began life way back in 1901 as the Milwaukee Brewers for just one season (the current MLB Milwaukee Brewers joined the league as an expansion team in 1968) before moving to St. Louis and becoming the St. Louis Browns. In 52 years, the team’s only season of note came in 1944 when they made the World Series but lost to their city rivals, the songbird-monikered St. Louis Cardinals. Whether or not this loss inspired their future name change, maybe no one will ever know, but when the team moved to Baltimore in 1954, they chose to call themselves the Baltimore Orioles. The Orioles didn’t ruffle many feathers in their first decade in the league, but in 1966, they suddenly found themselves in the World Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers and the O’s made the most of their first opportunity at the big time, sweeping the Dodgers in four straight. With their famous system of scouting, teamwork, and training dubbed “The Oriole Way,” the team became one of the strongest teams in baseball over the following two decades, reaching another World Series in 1969 but feeling the sting of defeat on that occasion, falling 4-1 to the New York Mets. The Orioles reversed that ledger the very next year, beating the Cincinnati Reds 4-1 to claim their second franchise World Series, and nearly added another the year after, falling to the Pittsburgh Pirates in a heartbreaking 2-1 loss in Game Seven of the 1971 World Series. The Pirates would plunder Baltimore’s dreams again in 1979, coming from behind to win Game Seven by a score of 4-1. 1981 saw the debut of perhaps the Orioles’ best all-round player of all time, Cal Ripken, Jr. (son of the team’s coach and manager Cal Ripken, Sr.), who led the team back to the World Series in 1983 with an MVP performance. There, the O’s would crush the Philadelphia Phillies in five to win their third World Series. A decade of struggle followed without a single playoff experience until 1996, though Ripken continued to shine as a player, retiring in 2001 having shattered Lou Gehrig’s record of 2,130 consecutive games (Ripken got to an unbelievable 2,632), a record previously thought to be completely unassailable. The Orioles have struggled to return to their previous winning ways, however, since he retired, making the playoffs just four times with a single ALCS appearance in 2014, where they were swept by the Kansas City Royals. Coming off a decent regular 2023 season followed by a playoff loss to the eventual winners, however, plus knowing that they have the 2023 Rookie of the Year and Manager of the Year, Orioles fans will be going into 2024 feeling slightly optimistic again that their team could get back to “The Oriole Way” and bring home that elusive fourth title.

Baltimore Orioles Rivalries

The Baltimore Orioles have long had healthy AL East divisional rivalries with the Boston Red Sox, New York Yankees, as well as their fellow feathered friends, the Blue Jays. Regionally, they are closest to the Washington Nationals and so there is something of a local rivalry there as well (dubbed Battle of the Beltways), though the two teams rarely play one another as the Nats are members of the National League. Scoring tickets to any of these popular matchups can be difficult, so your best option is to turn to TicketX, the spot to find affordable tickets to the best Baltimore Orioles games.
