The Baltimore Orioles are the professional baseball team from the Eastern Division of the Major Baseball League in the American League. The franchise is currently based in the Oriole Park in Baltimore, Maryland. The Baltimore Orioles is part of the eight charter franchises of the American League in 1901. Before being based in Baltimore, they first started in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where they were known as the Milwaukee Brewers. After that, they transferred again to St. Louis and became the St. Louis Browns for the next 52 years. In 1954, they decided to move to Baltimore and changed their name to Baltimore Orioles which is then the state bird of Maryland. The nickname Orioles were also used by other major league clubs in Baltimore such as the American League franchise of Baltimore Orioles in 1901-1902.They later then became known as the New York Yankees.
The greatest success of the Baltimore Orioles was during the years 1964-1983 then in 1996 to 1997. During these years, the Orioles were able to win a total of eight division championships, three World Series, five most valuable player awards for Brooks Robinson (1964), Frank Robinson (1966), Boog Powell (1970) and Cal Ripken Jr. (1983 and 1991), six pennants and one wild card berth. The success of the Orioles can also be strongly attributed to Paul Richards who became the general manager and ballclub’s manager in 1954. He was the pioneer and foundation of what is now known as the Oriole Way wherein there are instructions for the baseball fundamentals that have become uniform within the organization. When Carl Ripken Jr. retired in 2001, the success of the Baltimore Orioles started to wane. They experienced a losing record for every season since 1998 up to 2011. In the 2012 season, the Baltimore Orioles are starting to recover as they had a winning record.
