"Orioles Classics" #TBT: Extra excitement in extra innings

"Orioles Classics" #TBT: Extra excitement in extra innings
Just one more month to go. Hold on. Waiting out the winter can be tough on a baseball fan. T.S. Eliot called April "the cruelest month," but we all know that that distinction belongs to January. It seems like forever since we enjoyed a game at Camden Yards on a sweltering night or watched the Orioles live on MASN in our shorts with a cold one at the ready. But we're halfway through the month now, and this time next month, Sarasota will be stirring as spring training gets rolling. Meanwhile,...

"Orioles Classics" #TBT: Turn of the century

"Orioles Classics" #TBT: Turn of the century
More than any other fans I can think of, those of us who pull for the Orioles are more than happy to see 2018 in the rear-view mirror. With new leadership in the front office and in the dugout, fans aren't sure what 2019 will bring, but it sure ought to be interesting. Those new guys calling the shots around here have made it abundantly clear that they're looking ahead, searching for new blood and new ways (to the Orioles, at least) of doing things. But they have also given a firm nod to the...

"Orioles Classics" #TBT: No humbugs here
The ol' Warehouse was humming with the Spirit of Seasons Yet to Come earlier this week, when Orioles general manager Mike Elias introduced Birdland to the team's new skipper, Brandon Hyde. Like Bob Cratchit, Hyde now will have several youngsters to look after, as the O's rebuilding project will be flush with fresh-faced prospects. For Christmas Present, however, MASN will this week summon some ghosts from the past (OK, if you want to get technical, the principal characters in the games...

"Orioles Classics" #TBT: It was one fine day in Philadelphia
The NCAA football playoff matchups are set, and the Oklahoma, Notre Dame, Clemson and Alabama teams are x-ing and o-ing in preparation over the long layoff that follows the end of the regular season. The Maryland grid squad has a new coach. The NFL playoff picture is becoming clearer, though it's by no means settled, certainly not where the Ravens are concerned. Especially at this time of year, you hear the term "sudden death" more commonly in the context of football. But it happens in...

"Orioles Classics" #TBT: An unexpected call to arms and a parade of homers
It won't be long now. Pretty soon, the house will be filled with the aroma of roasting turkey. Folks will cram around the table to give thanks for life's many blessings. They'll also debate which type of cranberry sauce is better, the jiggly gel that slides out of the can or the kind boasting actual berries. But before Turkey Day, you can give thanks for some pretty special memories by watching this week's slate of "Orioles Classics" on MASN. If you prefer your baseball to feature...

You've stocked up on trick-or-treat candy, mangled a pumpkin into a snaggle-toothed jack-o-lantern and taken your Dracula cape out of mothballs. Now what?
