“Orioles Classics” #TBT: Extras! Extras! Read all about it!

If you can get up at (or stay up until) 4 a.m., you can now watch live baseball. It’s on the tube at that hour because it’s coming to you live from South Korea, where COVID-19 precautions have eased up enough to permit the Korea Baseball Organization to play ball, albeit without fans in the stands. It’s a little surreal, watching players you don’t know ... read more

“Orioles Classics” #TBT: More memories from yesteryear

For many years, Mother’s Day and baseball were irrevocably intertwined in my life. The first baseball game I ever attended was on Mother’s Day 1966, the day Frank Robinson hit a home run out of Memorial Stadium, making him the only player to ever accomplish that feat.

“Orioles Classics” #TBT: The first title, Jones’ last game as an Oriole

If the 2020 season had started on schedule, we might have had several postponements already anyhow, given the wet weather we’ve had this April.

“Orioles Classics” #TBT: A trio of tripleheaders on tap

Back in the days before I smartened up, the notion of a tripleheader was quite intriguing. Doubleheaders of my youth meant glorious Sundays spent at Memorial Stadium, figuring how best to stretch five bucks so that it lasted two games. And if the nightcap went more than the regulation nine innings? No worries, since Dad was listening on the radio and knew exactly when to ... read more

“Orioles Classics” #TBT: O’s torpedo Mariners

We’re all (Adam) Jonesing for Orioles baseball right now, but you’re not missing it on this particular day because April 16 was scheduled as an off-day to begin with. How’s that for rationalizing? If not for this pesky pandemic, the Birds would have just hosted the Cubs for a pair, the Wednesday game coming on Jackie Robinson Day. That’s the one day during the season ... read more

“Orioles Classics” #TBT: Marathon wins for long-term isolation

Getting tired of jigsaw puzzles yet? You’ve cleaned the house to within an inch of its life and you’re down to binge-watching the first (and final) season of “My Mother the Car.” About this time, of course, you should be doing the heel-of-hand-to-forehead move as you remember that MASN continually brings you the best moments in Orioles history.

“Orioles Classics” #TBT: Cal Ripken Jr. takes center stage

We should be celebrating the start of another baseball season today, packing Camden Yards for opening day the way only hard-core Orioles fans know how to do. What’s that old adage about best-laid plans often going astray? Baseball is in a holding pattern and we’re really not sure when the 2020 campaign is going to start. Luckily, we’ve got a treasure trove of “Orioles Classics” ... read more
