Orioles Legends Celebration Series

Admit it. You never would have predicted these amazing O’s would have the season they’re having. So when the Orioles announced their plan to unveil larger-than-life bronze statues of the six greatest Orioles in the picnic area at Camden Yards, it looked like another gimmick to hold us over while the team floundered. Yeah, it was going to be an awesome gimmick, but still a gimmick. Now, with the O’s rocking the fundaments of the baseball world, the bronze statues of Earl Weaver, Jim Palmer, Frank Robinson, Eddie Murray, Cal Ripken Jr.—and the greatest Oriole of all, Brooks Robinson, yet to come—the statues and the awesome mini versions fans get to take home from each unveiling game have served as a reminder that Orioles greatness has a long and mighty history. Love the Birds—and fear them!
