  • Two former Orioles turn 85.

    85th birthdays this week of two former Orioles: Jackie Brandt - 0F - April 28, a one-time American League All-Star (as an Oriole in 1961) and 1962 everyday outfielder for the N.L, champion, San Francisco Giants. Shortstop Luis Aparicio - April 29, a 10-time American League All-Star, 1958, 1959, 1960, 1961 1962 and 1970 with the Chicago White Sox, 1963 and 1964 as an Oriole and 1971 and 1972 with the Boston Red Sox. Aparicio was elected to the National Baseball Hall Of Fame of Cooperstown, New York in 1984. He was the spark behind the 1959 "Go=-G0"ite sox that won the American league pennant, interrupting several years of NY Yankees dominance.
