The Baltimore Orioles play in Baltimore, Maryland in the historic Camdem Yards. It competes in arguably the best division in baseball: the American League East, with powerhouses Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees. They have plenty of young talent ready to break out at any time, but they have had historic success throughout the franchise’s history. Established into the American League in 1901, the O’s have won the World Series in 1966, 1970, and 1983, and have clinched the AL Pennant 7 times in its glorious history.
The Orioles have fielded many perennial players, such as Cal Ripken Sr., Cal Ripken Jr., Tony Gwynn, and Jim Palmer. They look to build around All-Star talents like Matt Wieters, Adam Jones, and Nick Markakis. Recently overlooked in their division and league, the Baltimore Orioles are becoming a threat, both in the present and near future.
