Orioles Heroes

These were the Baltimore Orioles heroes who owned the summers of the 1960s

, ,

During the summers of the 1960s, the heroes of Baltimore wore Orioles uniforms. On their best days (which, except for 1966, were admittedly too few), they were entertaining and inspiring. They smote hated rivals and sent their best to the All-Star game, in the decade when that mid-summer classic moved under the lights … and into prime time.
On their worst days, these Orioles heroes broke our hearts, squandering late-inning leads and pre-season hopes … but they never lost our devotion.
They were the heroes of our youth. Now their stories are collected in Orioles Heroes: Remembering the Baltimore Orioles Who Helped Make the 1960s Baseball’s Real Golden Age.
