That is Dick Hall.
Baltimore had a serious problem at one particular position for a good portion of the 80's. The above photograph is one of many who tried to fill the position. The position, was one of Baltimore's great strengths for many years prior to the early 80's.
I assume this guy is a 3rd-baseman, but he doesn't look like Doug DeCinces.
It's not Doug, of course. When DeCinces, and before him Brooks Robinson manned the position, Baltimore was quite strong at the third base helm. Post DeCinces though, meant hard times at that position for the O's.
Well, it's obviously not Lenn Sakata, so I'll go with the immortal Wayne Gross.
Naw, Wayne lasted longer than this guy.
You might say he has something in common with a fictional explorer.
Once again, I thank you for the hint. How could we have forgotten the much hyped Glenn Gulliver?Originally Posted by Iron Jaw

Glenn Gulliver it is.
Here's another, not so famous, former Oriole - in his current minor league managing uniform:
Is that Wayne Krenchicki?
It is Wayne - a little older, fatter, and we can assume, wiser.
He played HS ball in my area. He played on the Ewing team that won the 1970 Babe Ruth world championship.

John Lowenstein. He did not play HS ball in my area.
I lived not too far from Baltimore in the mid-1980s and I enjoyed Lowenstein's work as a "color" man on local Oriole broadcasts. He was like an "intellectual Bob Uecker; he made fun of his mediocre career as a player. He was great. I wonder where he is now?
John Lowenstein was a pretty darned good pickup for the Orioles. He had a couple of tremendous seasons platooning in the OF with Gary Roenicke.
This guy came up with the Yankees as a top minor league prospect in 1960, and started ten games. He was bought by the Orioles, but spent most of the time in the minors. The O's tried him as a starter in 1966 when they were plagued with injuries to guys like Barber and Bunker. His only full season in the bigs was as a reliever with the Mets.
He was rather small for a pitcher, and had a "diminuitive" last name.
I don't think Chris Short pitched for either the Orioles or
I have no idea who this is!
But you're on the right track.
Bill Short is correct.
I do believe that is DAVE MC NALLY.
It is Dave, my favorite Oriole pitcher during his day in the sun. I'm not sure about the "B" on his hat though. Perhaps it's from one of the minor league farm clubs. Perhaps Bluefield?
