Baseball’s relationship with the No. 7 is one that spans more than a century. But why is that lucky number so crucial to the sport’s future? Stephen Heckman reports:
OPINON-BASED PIECE: Anyone with any interest in baseball is well aware that owners locked out players on December 1, 2021, after spending $2.1 billion in new contracts and contract extensions.
Major League Baseball may be locked out as owners and players fight over money, but that doesn’t mean the Minor Leagues can’t conduct business as usual.
Most Orioles fans know Adley Rutschman as the top prospect in all of baseball and Grayson Rodriguez as the top pitching prospect. They are the battery of the future for the Orioles, who hold high expectations to go along with the massive fan fair that is following their rise to stardom.
Major League Baseball might be halted from making moves, but it doesn’t stop the minors from locking up some players who might be in, if it happens, spring training.
A father and son stand in a backyard, tossing a white with red stitching ball back and forth. The smack against the genuine leather glove makes for a sound that brings back memories and moments from when a game became a National Pastime.
The Orioles have an interesting enigma going into the lockout that most teams don’t get to play with, an entire bullpen to build.
The Orioles have made numerous minor league coaching changes, including the promotion of Buck Britton.
As a Baltimore Orioles fan, we have had a whirlwind of adventures over the past decade plus.
A couple weeks ago, right-hander Marcos Diplán elected to forgo an assignment to the minor leagues and selected free agency. Here we are two weeks later, and Diplán has returned to the Orioles on a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.
A season that was a staple in history continues bringing accolades for Cedric Mullins. Finishing third in the Hank Aaron Award vote, Mullins came out on top of the Silver Slugger Awards, winning the first of his young career.
Four days after electing free agency, right-hander Spenser Watkins has signed a new minor league deal with the Orioles, along with an invitation to spring training.
With at least 10 spots open on the 40-man roster, the Orioles are either expecting to fill it through saving prospects or signing free agents this offseason.
In 2013 with the 22 pick in the draft, the Orioles thought they found a gem when they drafted right-hander Hunter Harvey, a future frontline starter, who came from a pedigree of a family known for pitching.
The Orioles have outrighted catcher Pedro Severino and right-handers Marcos Diplán and Conner Greene to Triple-A Norfolk. All three have elected free agency. Click for the latest.
Baseball: a sport full of fierce competition, edge-of-the-seat heroics and unbelievable feats. From the feel good story, to the star so big they shine before they arrive.
A year that saw struggles throughout the season for the Orioles saw highlights that made fans see the O’s rebuild is gaining steam along the long journey.
One of the great joys of offseason baseball is the playing of leagues that give prospects a chance to refine tools and make up for lost time during the season. And one of those great leagues is the Arizona Fall League.
One of the biggest parts of a rebuild is the ever-changing landscape of coaches, as a team looks to fix and/or fill areas that need improvement. Whether it be at the big league level or the minor league level, there is always a revolving door to find what will help take that next step.
The Baltimore Orioles have spent the last three years putting together an organization from bottom to top. Though rebuilds like this take time, it’s hard to turn your eyes away from the minor league system the Orioles have built, currently the best in baseball.
In 2015, the Orioles selected a 13th round pick out of Campbell University. A switch hitting outfielder who played one season of college ball and batted .340, while stealing 23 bases. At best, he was thought as maybe a reserve outfielder.
One of the fun things about being an Orioles fan this year has been the news on the farm. As we have struggled to get through a tough year with the big league team, we got to hear about the success of the Baby Birds and even see some of the future.
The final series against the Yankees was supposed to be dominated by New York. Unfortunately for the Yankees, they found out the Baltimore Orioles were a bit tougher than expected.
In 2019, the Orioles’ big wave of the amateur draft was No. 1 overall selection and current No. 1 overall prospect, Adley Rutschman. Changing the spectrum for how the Orioles’ minor league system would be built, Rutschman became the face of the future.
The Baltimore Orioles have spent the better part of three years rebuilding, and if there is one thing that they have shown, it’s that they have built a strong and talented minor league system.
Throughout the year, being a Baltimore Orioles fan has been an interesting time to say the least. We have experienced some ups and, unfortunately, many downs.
The Orioles played the Royals in a four-game series and played to a split in one of the most interesting series of the year.
The Baltimore Orioles have been in the midst of a rebuild for three years now, and in that time they have worked on developing younger players from the very bottom on up, including growing the international market that added an $800 million state-of-the-art facility in the Dominican Republic.
What a better way to celebrate an American holiday than with good ‘ole American baseball!
As the big league club starts to audition players for next year, there is some watch for present Orioles, who could be in the running for some hardware. Until the season ends, we will not know, but we will be hoping.
Sports as a collective is summed up in two words; winning and losing.
We all enjoy going to the ballpark to watch a game. The cheering of our home team, the smell of hot dogs and popcorn, vendors up and down the rows. It’s such a different feel, emotion, and experience that is difficult to top!
Over the course of a few seasons, fans like to monitor players taken by their favorite team in the annual MLB Draft. They clamor for them to succeed through the minor leagues and reach their big league club in no time, to which the fanfare would be enormous.
Rylan Bannon has been a surprise for the Orioles since being acquired by the team in 2018 from the Los Angeles Dodgers.

In a day that everyone expected Paul Fry, Tanner Scott, and maybe Trey Mancini to be donning new colors, the big news of the day was Freddy Galvis getting traded to where he begin his career, the Philadelphia Phillies.
Jonathan Schoop once called Baltimore home and gave the Orioles a steady presence at second base for years to come. Now, he once again will be across the diamond, as the former Oriole will be on the home team for the Motor City, Detroit Tigers, to open up a four-game set.
When it comes to Adley Rutschman, Oriole fans are no longer surprised with accolades; it just makes us anxious for his arrival and makes us anticipate what he will do for our team in the years to come.
The Orioles are going to be an exciting team in the coming years! But what will the team look like from a players standpoint? Our very own Stephen Heckman gives us a potential look for the lineup and starting rotation for Opening Day 2023!
The Orioles came into the 2021 season with the knowledge of a rebuild still in progress. Our pitching was supposed to find a little bit of stability with John Means, Dean Kremer, and Keegan Akin covering three spots in the rotation, but what about the other spots?
The Baltimore Orioles have had, well, let’s just say an unimpressive season to date. Currently on pace to win 56 games, it’s easy to say there more than likely won’t be a playoff chase this season.
In the blink of an eye, an ordinary day can become one that could change your life forever. No one expects it, and, most of all, no one knows how they would react in a particular instance. On May 2, 2021, Jonathan Bauer was about to find out how quickly that instance can come.
Mike Elias had a strategy laid out heading into the 2021 MLB Draft. He kept it close to the vest, and when approached about the matter, he told MASN this.

The Baltimore Orioles have gone above and beyond since 2018 to find talent that would be worthy of building and filtering through their minor league system, with the ultimate goal to have a continuous pipeline from the lowest level to the highest.
The Baltimore Orioles are in the middle of a complete club rebuild from top to bottom. While the big league club is still growing, one thing that can be certain is that the O’s have a young star in the making in Ryan Mountcastle.
