EPISODE SUMMARY

Special guest Mike Petty joins us this week to talk about his favorite team, the Baltimore Orioles. First we cover some of the highs and lows of the first forty years: the move from St. Louis, the glory days of the 1970's, the '83 title, and the epic losing streak of 1988. We close with a discussion of the opening of Camden Yards, considered by many to be the crown jewel of Major League ballparks. And be sure to tune in next time as Mike and the guys talk about his beloved Orioles teams of the 1990's!
