The Baltimore Orioles were originally founded as the Milwaukee Brewers in 1901 (not to be confused with the current MLB franchise) before becoming the St Louis Browns the following year. In 1954, the Browns relocated from St. Louis to the team’s current city of Baltimore to become the Orioles. The 1960s to 1980s was the high point for the Orioles franchise as the team captured three World Series titles (1966, 1970, and 1983) and saw its all-time greats like Brooks Robinson, Frank Robinson, Jim Palmer, and Cal Ripken Jr in action.
Although the Orioles did not qualify for the playoffs in 2015, the past four years have marked Baltimore’s return to postseason success after failing to make the playoffs for fourteen straight seasons. With key players like Chris Davis, Manny Machado, and Adam Jones set to return, the Orioles should expect to have some measure of success in 2016.

Chris Davis: Crushing It Home
Chris Davis may not be as prominent of a star as other players, but his prowess as a slugger has proven to be an absolute terror for MLB pitchers in recent years. Since joining the Baltimore Orioles in 2011, Chris Davis was the MLB’s home run leader in 2013 with 53 and 2015 with 47. Davis was also the league’s Silver Slugger in 2013. While many other players in MLB history have achieved far greater feats, to Baltimore, he is the only player to strike 40+ homers in two seasons. That said, the Orioles cannot be more grateful that Davis chose to sign a 7-year contract with the team earlier this year.
