A Mets and Yankees game plus the Orioles's stay in first place

I remarked to my boys that this was my third Mets Stadium. Of course, I’m an Orioles fan for life but took a trip when small to Old Polo Grounds to see the Mets play in 1963 or so. All I recall was Pirates outfielder Donn Clendenon hit a homer that hit a woman in …

Brother Lo's big hit: beating the Angels this week

No other way to describe the 1979 Orioles season than it was pure magic. Just one win in the last three games and it would have been perfect. So after breezing to the regular season title, the Orioles had to take on the California Angels to make it to the World Series. And that West …

Losing three of four from the Rays? Not good

Big comeback in 1964; and the almost sweep in New York

Ah, the 1964 baseball season. The last great hurrah from the Yankees. Just maybe Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris were on their last legs. New York won the most games in the American League (99) and had a winning record over every AL team except the Orioles. That was year that the great Brooks Robinson …
