History:The name "Orioles" is associated with Baltimore baseball teams since at least 1883. The Orioles joined the Eastern League (which later became the International League) in 1903. Rogers Hornsby managed the club in '39. The former St. Louis Browns adopted the Orioles moniker when they moved to Baltimore in 1954.
