  1. I'm going to use this thread to post interesting things about the minor league Orioles that played in the Eastern League and then the International League from 1903-1953, with the exception of 1915. They're kind of the forgotten heroes of Baltimore baseball because anything that's not Major League is sometimes treated like it didn't happen. So even the 1890s Orioles get Hall of Fame plaques, while the seven consecutive IL champ Orioles are rarely mentioned at all. My first bit will be on the 1925 Orioles, the 7th of the seven consecutive IL champs. After the '24 season Jack Dunn finally relented and sold Lefty Grove to the A's for $100,600 (about $1.5M today). In '24 he'd gone 26-6 for the Orioles. As an Oriole Grove went 108-36 in parts of five years. But not to worry, those 26 wins would have been fourth on the 1925 Orioles. Tommy Thomas, who'd pitch for the White Sox for years after leaving Baltimore, threw 56 games, 354 innings, and went 32-12. George Earnshaw started 41 games, pitched in 53, threw 332 innings, and went 29-11. And sitting in the back of the rotation was Jack Ogden who only got into 51 games, 327 innings and went 28-11. 89 wins out of their top three starters. The 2019 Orioles got 28 out of theirs.
