  • Not even iron grip could stop club's slip

    Of all the lessons learned by Cal Ripken, perhaps none was tougher than what came in 1986. That's the year Ripken learned to lose. The Orioles finished last in the American League East, 22 games out of first place. It was the first time since 1967...
  • Her positive spin

    When she walks into the Olympic Stadium tomorrow night for the closing ceremony, Kimmie Meissner will have something more valuable than her sixth-place finish as a souvenir. The figure skater from Bel Air has added a line to her resume, one more...
  • Kept in isolation, Phelps gains world exposure

  • Listening to 'Old No. 5' remains easy delight for Orioles watchers

    The TV Repairman: There's a knack to listening to Brooks Robinson do an Orioles game on television. You want clubhouse chatter, full disclosure of what Cal Ripken had for breakfast or a bunch of tiresome and meaningless statistics, "Old No. 5," as...
  • Inside the Browns deal

    As the Gulfstream jet lifted off the runway on its secret mission, Cleveland Stadium came briefly into view. Scattered among the plane's leather-upholstered seats were four men who knew the stadium better than the masons who built it: Browns owner Art...
  • Eddie Murray: homers to remember

    June 23, 1979: One night after Doug DeCinces' ninth-inning homer stunned Detroit and started "Orioles magic," Murray kept it going in the opener of a doubleheader. Trailing by a run in the ninth inning, the Orioles put two on with one out for Murray,...
  • 500th is spontaneous joy to O's

    The Orioles front office planned the festivities surrounding Eddie Murray's 500th home run a month ago; from the streamers at first base, to the video clips on the scoreboard, to the graphics of Murray's face on the scoreboard. The players, coaches and...
  • Murray hits No. 500

    Eddie Murray's timing was impeccable. On the one-year anniversary of Cal Ripken's historic 2,131st consecutive game, Murray launched his 500th home run and became only the third player in baseball history to reach both 500 homers and 3,000 hits. Murray...
  • In '83 Series, a vintage performance

    The post-game celebration of the Orioles' 1983 World Series victory over the Philadelphia Phillies remains etched in traveling secretary Phil Itzoe's mind. The team ran out of champagne, and he had to find more. When the first five cases had been...
