9781484086278: Orioles Heroes: Remembering the Baltimore Orioles Who Helped Make the 1960s Baseball's Real Golden Age

These were the heroes who owned the summers of the 1960s. Brooks Robinson and Dave McNally. Boog Powell and Hoyt Wilhelm. Milt Pappas and Frank Robinson. Luis Aparicio and Steve Barber. During the summers of the 1960s, the heroes of Baltimore wore Orioles uniforms. On their best days (which, except for 1966, were admittedly too few), they were entertaining and inspiring. They smote hated rivals and sent their best to the All-Star game, in the decade when that mid-summer classic moved under the lights ... and into prime time. On their worst days, these Orioles heroes broke our hearts, squandering late-inning leads and pre-season hopes ... but they never lost our devotion. They were the heroes of our youth. Now their stories are collected in Orioles Heroes: Remembering the Baltimore Orioles Who Helped Make the 1960s Baseball’s Real Golden Age. The book profiles the best (and a few of the worst) of the Baltimore Orioles of the 1960s. In all, there are 66 profiles of the infielders, outfielders, catchers and pitchers who played for the Baltimore Orioles in the 1960s. Do you remember ... The hard-throwing right-hander who led the American League in wins in 1960? (page 78) The Gold Glove third baseman who was a 15-time All-Star and 1964 Most Valuable Player? (page 21) The shortstop who led the league in stolen bases 9 times and earned 9 Gold Gloves (2 in Baltimore)? (page 10) The All-Star outfielder who led the American League in RBIs (and a couple other categories) in 1966? (page 44) The hard-luck right-hander who had his only winning season (1960) with the Orioles ... despite a 4.06 career ERA? (page 96) The slugging first baseman who hit 4 home runs in one game in 1962? (page 12) The bullpen ace who won 17 games in 3 seasons as a reliever for the Orioles, and won 26 games in 2 seasons as a starter ... including a no-hitter? (page 113) The hard-hitting first baseman who was a 4-time All-Star and hit 303 home runs for the Orioles? (page 19) The right-hander who won 110 games for the Orioles and then was traded for a future Triple Crown winner? (page 102) The veteran pitcher who set a record striking out 6 consecutive batters in relief during the 1966 World Series? (page 78) Their stories are here. Enjoy the memories.
