Here is an original game lineup sheet that was passed out to members of the media in the Press Box earlier in the evening showing Cal Jr. batting 6th and playing third:

That's a very neat item!

Day 265 (September 21, 2020 – 265)

Feels like a snapshot photo type of day. The first snapshot is of Brooks and Connie Robinson along with Lee McPhail, the Orioles President and General Manager. The snapshot was on October 22, 1965 and was at some type of dinner event.

Day 265 a Snapshot 1965 Connie MacPhail October 22.jpg

Next up is a snapshot of Brooks from 1974 taken at Metropolitan Stadium.

Day 265 b Snapshot 1974 Metropolitan Stadium.jpg

The last snapshot today is a bit odd taken in the Orioles locker room. It pictures Brooks, Jerry Adair and a young David Pinsky. All look a little uncomfortable to me…

Default 1992 Kane County Cougars

For the past 14 seasons, the structure of the Orioles minor league affiliates has remained intact, with the exception of the Orioles dropping their Bluefield affiliate after the 2010 season. The Delmarva Shorebirds have been the Orioles low level class A affiliate since 1997.

However, in the early 1990's the Orioles A affiliates hopped around for a few years until landing in Delmarva. Teams included the Wausua Timbers (1990), Kane County Cougars (1991-1992), Albany Polecats (1993-1994) and High Desert Mavericks (1995-1996).

Today, I'm taking a look at the 1992 Kane County Cougars. The Cougars were located in Geneva, Illinois and played in the Midwest League. The Cougars finished 61-76. Not a lot of future Orioles talent on the team, but did include Rick Krivda, Curtis Goodwin, Scott Klingenbeck and Jimmy Haynes.

Day 266 (September 22, 2020 - 266)

Once again we see the Norman Rockwell, “Gee, Thanks Brooks” on a Rawlings Sporting Goods Company cover. The 1972 Rawlings Spring and Summer Institutional catalog with all the Rawlings sporting goods listed inside. They even have the start of the new colored gloves; featuring bright red and blue gloves, endorsed by Reggie Jackson (GJ55, GJ56) and Willie Stargell (GJ64, GJ65).

Default William Jacobellis photos

William Jacobellis was a highly regarded sports photographer for many years. Topps used some of his photos for their cards, especially in the 1950's & 60's. His original photos pop occasionally on eBay and some stars go for big bucks. Aside from his name/stamp on the back, his photos tend to have a black border around them. I picked up a few Orioles for my collection years ago.

Alan,

Do you think these were cut from a contact sheet?

Really good quality for sure.

Today wouldn’t be that great without a couple of fielding photos shot in Memorial Stadium during the 1969 season to end the post.

Default Orioles Postcards

Historically. the Orioles have printed postcards of mostly uniformed members of the team, players and coaches, with the exception of a couple postcards of the Orioles ballgirls in the late 80's.

Beginning in 1990, the Orioles periodically added postcards of their announcers and even a few general managers. The first two were B&W postcards of Rex Barney and Jon Miller. They were followed by Chuck Thompson, Frank Wren, Jim Beattie, Mike Flanagan, Joe Angel, Jim Hunter, Buck Martinez, Fred Manfra, Jim Hunter, Gary Thorne and Mike Elias. The Orioles took a step further this year and printed a postcard of analytics guru, Sig Mejdal.

Day 268 (September 24, 2020 – 268)

I think all of these sheets have been shown, but I had them scanned so may as well revisit. I remember fondly the Upper Deck commemorative sheets in early 90’s. Oh, and of course they were called limited editions which were limited in the tens of thousands… I’ll be honest I’m unsure how many of these sheets have Brooks contained, but here are the five I have scanned below:

1991 Upper Deck A Tribute to All-Star Heroes – July 8, 1991

Day 268 a 1991 UD A Tribute to All-Star Heroes July 8 a.jpg

1992 Upper Deck Heroes of Baseball

Day 268 b 1992 UD Heroes of Baseball a.jpg

1992 Upper Deck “Heroes of Baseball All-Star Game” – July 13, 1992

Day 268 c 1992 UD Heroes of Baseball All-Star Game a.jpg

1993 Upper Deck Heroes of Baseball – July 12, 1993

Day 268 d 1993 UD Heroes of Baseball AS Game July 12 a.jpg

1994 Upper Deck Tribute to the 1964 Season – June 4, 1994 (can't get this one to come up correctly; sorry about that.

Day 268 e 1994 UD Tribute to the 1964 Season June 4 a.jpg

There may be more, but I think the five are good enough for today...

Default Orioles Photos

Yesterday, I posted some team issued postcards of some non-uniformed Orioles personnel. Today, I'll add a few team issued 8x10 photos to the mix.

Included are the core group of general managers that guided the Orioles through years of success from the 60's to their last World Series win in 1983.

Owners Jerold Hoffberger

Hoffberger, Jerold 1 - Copy.JPG

General Managers & Asst General Managers Harry Dalton, Frank Cashen, Hank Peters, Roland Hemond and Frank Robinson

Dalton, Harry 1 - Copy.JPG Cashen, Frank 1 - Copy.jpg Peters, Hank 1 - Copy.JPG Hemond, Roland 1 - Copy.jpg Robinson, Frank 12 - Copy.jpg

Announcers Chuck Thompson and Jon Miller

This last guy may not be known by many of you. Len Johnston had a long minor league career before joining the Orioles organization. For over 30 years, Johnston served as a coach for the Bluefield Orioles. After the Orioles cut ties with Bluefield, Johnston as a regular at the spring training minor league camp, even serving as the camp's coordinator until a couple years ago.
