SPORTS #Orioles Spring Training Pays Homage To History And Looks To The Future By Kevin E. Dayhoff: http://patch.com/A-rdbv





Last Sunday, the Baltimore Orioles pitchers began the annual two-month spring training ritual at the Ed Smith Stadium Complex in Sarasota, Florida. When this writer arrived last Saturday in Sarasota, the temperatures were unseasonally warm, but certainly not as hot as Buck Showalter, the 55-year-old DeFuniak Springs Florida native and returning Orioles manager must be feeling.

…Nevertheless, as I arrived in Sarasota last Saturday evening, in part, to attend as many of the spring training sessions as possible, my thoughts turn to several of my all-time favorite baseball stories.

One story is about the saga of how one my sports heroes, Jackie Robinson, broke the Major League Baseball color barrier, which had begun in the 1880s, on April 15, 1947.

[…]

The first day of Baltimore Orioles’ spring training began Sunday when the pitchers and catchers reported for the annual ritual in Sarasota, Florida.

It’s a sure sign that – thankfully – spring weather is about to make its debut in Maryland.

Baseball has always been a favorite topic for many local history writers. And why not? Writing about baseball is fun. It has everything to warm the keyboard including summertime, arcane statistics, intrigue, colorful events, talent, family, and friends.

Articles about sports are fun to read and sports writers are some of my favorite writers… http://www.thetentacle.com/ShowArticle.cfm?mydocid=4934

Kevin Dayhoff – Carroll Eagle Archive www.explorecarroll.com: SARASOTA, Fla. — Early in the morning last Sunday, Feb. 19, the Baltimore Orioles pitchers and catchers opened spring training at Ed Smith Stadium in Sarasota, Fla., …

[…]


… "Baseball came to Westminster the year after the end of the Civil War. Bat-and-ball games had been played since time immemorial, but modern baseball is descended from the game as played in New York City in the 1840s."

Hershberger records that one of the earliest references to baseball in Carroll was the "Olympian Base Ball Club (which) was founded on April 14, 1866."

That may just put Carroll County ahead of Baltimore. A number of media sources, including VisitBaltimore.org, the website for Baltimore Convention & Tourism Board, reports the first mention of baseball in Baltimore came in 1882, "when Harry Vonderhorst sponsored a Baltimore team in" what was then known as the American Association of baseball clubs, (1882-1891.)

"In 1894, the (at that time, National League) Baltimore Orioles won their first professional baseball championship…(In) 1903 the team moved to New York and eventually became today's NY Yankees." … The current Baltimore Orioles franchise began playing baseball in 1954 in Memorial Stadiumhttp://www.baltimoresun.com/explore/carroll/news/community/ph-ce-eagle-archive-0226-20120222,0,6575174.story
