CMT's conversation with O's Trey Mancini and country music star Brett Young

CMT's conversation with O's Trey Mancini and country music star Brett Young
Before he played to a sold-out crowd at Ram's Head Live earlier this month, country music star Brett Young made a beeline for Camden Yards, where he was hosted by Trey Mancini for a special behind-the-scenes visit of the iconic ballpark. Young, one of Shazam's "Emerging Artists of 2017," played catch with Mancini on the field and got an up-close-and-personal look at the dugout and Orioles clubhouse. CMT was on hand to document Young's visit to the O's nest, and aired a conversation with...

"Orioles Classics" #TBT: Trumbo crushes first opening day walk-off homer in O's history

"Orioles Classics" #TBT: Trumbo crushes first opening day walk-off homer in O's history
On April 3, Orioles fans were spoiled with a dramatic and thrilling opening day contest in a 2016 American League wild card game rematch against the Blue Jays. Tied 2-2 with two outs and two strikes in the bottom of the 11th inning, O's slugger Mark Trumbo picked up right where he left off in 2016, when he led the majors with 47 home runs during the regular season. A solo shot to left-center field notched his sixth career walk-off homer, this one coming off Jason Grilli, which led the Birds to...

Camden Yards hosts Maryland Food Bank event to bring holiday meals to those in need

Camden Yards hosts Maryland Food Bank event to bring holiday meals to those in need
On most gamedays, people stream through the gates at Camden Yards ready to enjoy a baseball game. On Wednesday, what was leaving the ballpark carried far more significance. Teams of volunteers from Baltimore's corporate community braved a November chill on the stadium's main concourse this morning to pack bags containing a holiday feast for those in need. The Maryland Food Bank's "Pack to Give Back Local" will provide 12,600 meals - turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green beans, cranberry...

"Orioles Classics" #TBT: Britton notches 55th consecutive save to break AL record

"Orioles Classics" #TBT: Britton notches 55th consecutive save to break AL record
We continue our #ThrowbackThursday offseason series with a look at one of the top pitching milestones of the 2017 season. On July 23, in the Orioles' 9-7 comeback win over the eventual World Series champion Astros, closer Zach Britton locked down his 55th consecutive save to set a new American League record, which was previously held by Red Sox closer Tom "Flash" Gordon (54, April 19, 1998-May 31, 1999). Britton's dominant streak continued until Aug. 21, when he converted his 60th...

From Camden Yards to World Series: Remembering Hailey Dawson's first pitch in Birdland

From Camden Yards to World Series: Remembering Hailey Dawson's first pitch in Birdland
If you thought the youngster who threw out the first pitch at Minute Maid Park before tonight's Game 4 of the World Series looked familiar, you're right. Hailey Dawson, the 7-year-old from Las Vegas with the 3-D printed hand who got tonight's ceremonial honor at the Fall Classic, was here in Birdland just two years ago with All-Star third baseman Manny Machado of the Orioles as her batterymate and new best friend. Then, as a 5-year-old, she got the star treatment at Camden Yards before a...

Zach Wilt: Looking at the Orioles' window to win

Zach Wilt: Looking at the Orioles' window to win
I used to be a firm believer in the "window to win" methodology in baseball. Not familiar with the "window to win?" I can explain. The Orioles are a small market team that will never have the payroll to compete in the free agent market with the Dodgers, Red Sox, Cubs or Yankees. That means that they have to acquire quality young talent with a mid-to-low payroll. In order to do that, they have to build through the draft or add high-upside and controllable players. As a result, they find...

Dillon Atkinson: A lot of questions need answering before next spring

Dillon Atkinson: A lot of questions need answering before next spring
The Baltimore Orioles are currently 75-83, tied with the Toronto Blue Jays for last place in the American League East division. This is the club's first losing season since 2011, and first under executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette. The Birds gave the fans something to cheer and hope for heading into September, but the last month has been a pure disappointment. If there's anything good about getting officially eliminated from playoff contention early, it's that there...

Andrew Stetka: Hardy left an impression on Orioles

Andrew Stetka: Hardy left an impression on Orioles
In my consumption of Orioles news and commentary over the last week, I heard something that caught me off-guard. The Orioles Hall of Fame conversation came up and it surrounded shortstop J.J. Hardy. My immediate reaction was puzzled. Why would Hardy be a shoe-in for the team's Hall of Fame? He's never even been the best player on his own team, let alone a standout during his tenure in Baltimore. After a moment of thinking about it, I realized that none of that mattered. That's not what the...

Zach Wilt: What the Orioles can learn from this year's postseason clubs

Zach Wilt: What the Orioles can learn from this year's postseason clubs
September can be challenging if your team isn't one of the 10 still playing postseason baseball. With eight games remaining, the Orioles are five games back of a playoff spot and would have five teams to hurdle over to get there. They haven't been mathematically eliminated yet, but it's not looking good. In recent years, this part of the season has been exciting around Charm City. Lately, my Facebook memories have been filled with pictures of the O's winning the American League East or...

Dillon Atkinson: Who could return to next year's starting rotation?

Dillon Atkinson: Who could return to next year's starting rotation?
As the 2017 season is winding down, what looked to be a fun race for the postseason is now a disappointing finish that came up short. This team has flaws. The offense is inconsistent, at times the defense is shaky and the bullpen, while being good overall, has let us down here and there. But you know exactly what I left out because it's the most obvious: the Orioles need better starting pitching. I know I don't even need to bring up any league-wide statistics to prove my point here. It's...

Andrew Stetka: O's gave it a run, but never had horses for postseason

Andrew Stetka: O's gave it a run, but never had horses for postseason
For all intents and purposes, the 2017 Orioles season is over. We're probably a week or two late on declaring this. Some would say we are a month or two late. Sure, there are still games left on the schedule and baseball will be played over the final few weeks, but the Orioles as a team for this year are done. They were "done" multiple times since early July, when fans and media alike started to proclaim that it wasn't in the cards. This time, they finally are done. And if by some miracle,...
