A complete reference to the history of the Baltimore Orioles' baseball franchise arranged in chronological order, day-by-day. Trivia fans, baseball aficionados, and Orioles devotes will enjoy reminiscing about the glory of days gone by. While not a "picture book" in the traditional sense, Baltimore Orioles: Day-by-Day is more like a family photo album. Five decades of baseball history from Cal Abrams to Cal Ripken Jr. read about the good and not so good days of the Baltimore Orioles. On a particularly good day (April 2, 1976) the Orioles traded to et Reggie Jackson for Don Baylor, Mike Torrez and Paul Mitchell. On a not so good day just eight months later (November 29, 1976) Reggie Jackson signs with the New York Yankees as a free agent. On a particularly good day (October 6, 1969) Jim Palmer scatters 10 hits but gives up only two runs over nine innings to give the Orioles a win over the Twins and the American League Championship. On a not so good day just 10 days later, Baltimore's reliever Watt gives up a World Series winning double to the New York Mets' Ron Swoboda. From Jim Palmer's first game and Brooks Robinson's last, to Frank Robinson's game winning home run in the fourth and final game of the 1966 World Series, to Earl Weaver, Memorial Stadium, Camden Yards, trades and championships, it is all here in Baltimore Orioles: Day-by-Day.
