“The history of baseball in Baltimore is as deep-rooted and tradition-rich as anywhere in America. If you are a fan of our national pastime, I am certain you will enjoy scrolling through this compelling chronicle of what makes Baltimore baseball unique. From Ruth to Ripken, from the Elite Giants to our Baltimore Orioles, there’s nothing quite as intriguing as these tales of our orange and black.” — Mike Gibbons, Director Emeritus, Babe Ruth Birthplace Foundation

Baltimore Baseball touches on some of the rich history of baseball in the Baltimore area, through recounts of 84 games from 1876 through 2019.

The bulk of the games feature the Baltimore Orioles — the current franchise from 1954 to the present — but we also have games from the nineteenth century, the early twentieth century, and the Negro Leagues. Some of the most memorable games in Baltimore history are included, along with some unique contests, and Hall of Fame players featured throughout.

Also included are “ballpark biographies” of seven Baltimore ballparks — Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Memorial Stadium, Union Park, American League Park, Bugle Field, Terrapin Park, and Maryland Park, and an essay on other early ballparks.

Fifty-four members of the Society for American Baseball Research and SABR’s Babe Ruth Chapter contributed their talents as researchers, writers, and editors to create this look at Baltimore Baseball, an ideal keepsake for diehard O’s fans and an apt introduction for those coming to Charm City for the first time.

Contributors include: Malcolm Allen, Steve Behnke, Gary Belleville, Luis A. Blandon Jr., Bob Brown, John J. Burbridge Jr., Frederick C. Bush, Sean Church, Matt Clever, Alan Cohen, Peter Coolbaugh, Chris Corrigan, Richard Cuicchi, Tim Deale, Bill Felber, Bob Fleishman, Brian Frank, Gordon J.
