Name this Oriole...
Sorry to interrupt...Storm was known as "Cy Clone", a pun on his first (nick)name and also his reported similarities to Jim Palmer, who was called "Cy Old" in those days. The media guide said "Call him Storm...his mother does."
We now return you to your regularly scheduled thread.
Name the Oriole.... and for extra credit.... name who he is speaking with
Is that Luis Aparicio and Moose Skowron?
I think the White Sox guy is Nellie Fox.
That's a great shot of the two future Hall of Famers who played along side each other for years. I would assume the photo is from 1963? That was Fox's last year with the Sox and Aparicio's first year with the Orioles.
It is Luis Aparicio and Nellie Fox.....
Please post the next Oriole to be identified.
Wow. Didn't realize Nellie was that much bigger than Appy. I was just trying to think of somebody big who played for the White Sox about that time. But maybe it was just because Luis was sooooooo small.
Hint: He was nicknamed "Iron Man" and once famously spit in an umpire's face.
It doesn't look like either Cal Ripken or Roberto Alomar.
Nobody even wants to hazard a guess? The guy is in the Hall of Fame. He pitched in professional baseball until he was 54 years old. In his rookie year with the Orioles he was 28-16 with a 2.63 ERA. He once pitched both ends of a doubleheader three times in a month, winning all six games.
After instigating a fight in which he kicked an umpire and spit tobacco juice in his face, this player received a lifetime ban from baseball -- which was subsequently reduced to 12 games on appeal.
Not sure of spelling and without looking it up to verify he played for the Orioles...Joe McGinnity?
You are correct sir!
McGinnity came up with the original Baltimore Orioles and then played the 1901 and 1902 seasons for the American League Baltimore Orioles before the club was moved to New York to eventually become the Yankees. He also played for the Brooklyn Superbas (later the Dodgers) and the New York Giants (where he was reunited with his old Baltimore Orioles skipper, John McGraw).

Jackie was a flake

Looks like Sam Bowens. I saw him play for the Red Wings in the 60's.

It most assuredly is Dave Philley.....proceed.
