Sept. 29, 1988: After their final home game, a 5-1 loss to the New York Yankees, the Orioles (54-104) peel off their jerseys, which are presented to fans in what is billed as “Shirts Off Our Back Night.”

Sept. 25, 1983: “We’ve got the best fans in baseball,” the Orioles’ Ken Singleton tells a joyous crowd of about 5,000 fans who greet the team at Baltimore-Washington International Airport after a 5-1 American League East-clinching win over the Milwaukee Brewers. “Pretty soon,” Singleton says, “we’ll try to give you the best team in baseball.”
