(Before It's News)


The St. Louis Browns moved to Baltimore and became the Orioles.   The Browns had been struggling for years and the AL approved the move on this day in 1953.   

The 1954 Orioles won 54 games but drew 1 million fans.   The 1953 Browns had also won 54 games but only drew 253,000 fans.   

It took a few years for the O’s to get competitive but it was the right move for all concerned.

The Browns were in the World Series in 1944.    The Orioles made it in 1966.
