Black holes in your Orioles memory

I was compiling a list of closers who had pitched for the O's today, and was shocked to see that Doug Jones was once our closer. I swear, I have no memory at all of that. Are there players who played a somewhat significant role for the Orioles that had no impact on you like that?

I saw somewhere recently that Lonnie Smith was on the Orioles for the stretch run in 1993. I remember that team pretty well. Had no clue.

I always forget about Mike Fetters, Pat Rapp, and Shawn Boskie. They weren't significant in terms of contributions, since they were all terrible, but I would say they pitched a significant number of innings. On the offensive side, Rich Amaral.

The mid-80's was a time I didn't pay as much attention to baseball as I have for the rest of my life, so I had to look up the teams from that era.

Who the heck was Mike Young? It seems he held down LF for several years and played well for a couple of them.

Mike Young was awesome... for 1 1/2 years. Switch hitter with power from both sides of the plate. Hit one of the longest HR I ever saw at Memorial Stadium, on the hill past the CF bleachers.

Rick Burleson would be my black hole name.

I would like to throw out a few of the greats from your 1995 Baltimore Orioles. Let us not forget about Andy Van Slyke, Matt Nokes and Sid Fernandez. Ah, those were the days.
Well played. Matt Nokes...wow...wasn't he the one time back up to Lance Parrish in Detroit? Wow, I date myself....
