The Baltimore Orioles franchise began back in 1894 as a minor league team named the Milwaukee Brewers. In 1901, they became one of the original eight teams of the American League (along with an unrelated and soon-disbanded squad called the Baltimore Orioles). The following year, the team relocated to St. Louis, renamed themselves the Browns, and took up residence at a venue known as Sportsman's Park. The Browns lasted until 1953. They were generally not a powerful force in the major leagues, but they did have some notable successes, including an AL pennant in 1944.
The team's fortunes began to change for the better after they moved to Baltimore in 1954. In the '60s, the Orioles, as they were now called, became serious contenders, capturing the World Series championship in 1966 and 1970. Outfielder and future Hall of Famer Frank Robinson played an important role in the Orioles' successes during this era.
The team remained a tough squad during the '70s as they went on to collect AL pennants in 1971 and 1979. Cal Ripken Jr. joined the team in 1981 and would go on to play 2,632 consecutive games for the Orioles, still an MLB record. The Ripken era also saw the Orioles collecting their third World Series title, in 1983.
