|All the glory and classic moments of the Orioles World Series Championships from 1966 to 1983 are digitally preserved on this official DVD.|
Spanning both three decades and three managers--Hank Bauer, Earl Weaver, and Joe Altobelli--the enduring, common trait of the Baltimore Orioles® success was stellar pitching, well-timed power, and peerless defense.
The arrival of Frank Robinson in 1966 catapulted the Orioles to their first Fall Classic®. Baltimore's pitchers dominated, holding the Los Angeles Dodgers® to just two runs--for the entire four-game World Series. Four Octobers later, the Birds power hitting and fielding were on display. The rally-ending defense of Brooks Robinson and the club's 10 home runs in five games helped the O's to a second Championship.
In 1983, the familiar formula and a familiar face held an encore. The Orioles staff, including Jim Palmer who provided a bridge to the 1966 victors, stifled the Philadelphia Phillies® allowing only seven runs in the five games.
