The winningest baseball franchise from 1960 to 1997, the Orioles are a beloved team that encompasses each of the game's major issues of the last half century--integration, free agency, drugs, labor strife, and runaway salaries. In From 33rd Street to Camden Yards, Baltimore Sun columnist John Eisenberg brings to life the epic saga of this amazing team through the recollections of those who were there--the players, managers, coaches, and owners. Includes 16 pages of photos.
From the Back Cover:
The Baltimore Orioles are one of baseball's premier franchises. Their past is a sweeping tale that includes three World Series titles, six American League pennants, and such legendary figures as Brooks Robinson, Cal Ripken Jr., Frank Robinson, Jim Palmer, Eddie Murray, and Earl Weaver. Their present, marked most notably by Ripken's historic streak of 2,632 consecutive games played, is a swirl of highs and lows that unfold at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, a postmodern jewel of a ballpark located in downtown Baltimore and filled to capacity on most nights. Their future? The only certainty is high-priced turmoil, thanks to the deep pockets and headstrong ways of Peter Angelos, a Baltimore lawyer who owns the team and has become one of baseball's most controversial figures.
In this book, John Eisenberg brings to life the epic saga of baseball's winningest franchise from 1960 to 1997, in the voices of the players, managers, coaches, owners, front-office officials, and others who have helped make the Orioles a secular religion in a city that calls itself Baseball City, USA. Relying on the same compelling storytelling, persistent research, and eye for detail that marked his much-acclaimed football memoir, Cotton Bowl Days, and utilizing knowledge and insights culled from fifteen years of award-winning reporting, Eisenberg turns dozens of hours of interviews with Hall of Famers and reserve infielders alike into a vivid, fast-moving oral history-the first ever of the Orioles.
John Eisenberg interviewed more than ninety individuals for this book-including such Orioles stars as Earl Weaver, Ken Singleton, Cal Ripken Jr., Jim Palmer, Frank Robinson, and current owner Peter Angelos--making From 33rd Street to Camden Yards a rich, rewarding book that defines the Orioles and the Orioles experience.
