The Orioles clashes with the New York Yankees and Washington Nationals are generally their most anticipated games and that will not be different this season. Baltimore Orioles tickets sales improved after their successful 2012 season and management is hoping these figures will continue to grow as the franchise experiences more success.
Baltimore Orioles Franchise History
The Orioles organization came into being as the Milwaukee Brewers before becoming the St. Louis Browns in 1902 and the Baltimore Orioles in 1954. The franchise generally struggled in the early years of their existence but finally found success in the 1960s and 70s. The Orioles won the 1966 and 1970 World Series Championships becoming one of the most dominant teams of the period. After a few lean seasons the franchise became a force once again and added a third World Series Championship in 1983. The Orioles have never returned to these glory years and have won only a single division title since their last World Series triumph.
Baltimore Orioles Offensive Star: Adam Jones
Adam Jones was selected in the first round of the 2003 MLB draft by the Seattle Mariners. Jones was generally a minor league player for the Mariners and in 2008 was traded to the Baltimore Orioles. The center fielder's career has gone from strength to strength since this move. In 2009, he made his MLB All-Star debut and was awarded the Gold Glove Award for his outstanding efforts in the field. Since that time he has been considered one of the premier center fielders in all of Baseball and last season won his second Gold Glove Award. Jones has become the heart of the Orioles organization and will be looking to lead the franchise to their first division title since 1997.
Baltimore Orioles Defensive Star: Wei-Yin Chen
Wei-Yin Chen made his Olympic debut for Chinese Taipei in 2004 at the age of 19 and was one of the leading pitchers in Nippon Professional Baseball. Chen signed with the Baltimore Orioles in 2012 and became one of the franchises starting pitchers. Chen finished the season with more wins than any other Orioles pitcher but the pitching rotation generally struggled for consistency. The Orioles have a great deal of depth in their bullpen but need Chen to step up as their ace pitcher.
Baltimore Orioles Manager: Buck Showalter
Buck Showalter is one of the most experienced managers in the MLB. He began his managing career at the New York Yankees in 1992 before joining the Arizona Diamondbacks in 1998, the Texas Rangers in 2003 and the Baltimore Orioles in 2010. Showalter has never won a World Series but developed the Yankees and the Diamondbacks into post-season contenders who went on to win the World Series shortly after his departure. Last season, Showalter led the Orioles to their first MLB playoffs appearance since 1997 and is hoping to go even further in 2013.
