By the 1987 baseball season, my last as an Orioles employee, we knew our favorite baseball team had hit rock bottom.
Kind of funny that I got a full apology nearly 30 years later. It’s the 1979 World Series and I’m alone in my Georgetown DC house. The roommates are gone and of course the wonderful Orioles are on television facing the evil Pirates and we are trailing 6-3 heading to the eighth inning of game four in Pittsburgh. But the O’s are threatening and Pittsburgh is forced to bring in ace reliever Kent Tekulve.
Mike Young drove a fancy car. Don’t ask me as cars aren’t my thing. But the former Orioles outfielder came down to our DC store and looked cool. He might have been a movie star.
