FenwayNation To Review Book On O's History

As the Red Sox head to Camden Yards, we are happy to say that we'll soon be reviewing a new book on the Baltimore Orioles franchise. The book, "60 Years Of Orioles Magic", is an authoritative visual history of one of baseball's greatest franchises. After morphing from the horrific St. Louis Browns in 1954, the Birds have won three World Series Championships—a team with a legacy of great players like Brooks Robinson, Frank Robinson, Boog Powell and Jim Palmer. Your Editor-In-Chief's "dirty little secret" is that—for a brief time—he abandoned The Carmine Hose (in the pre-1967 era) and rooted for the Orioles. After the O's won it all in 1966 (sweeping the mighty Dodgers in four games), he re-stated his un-dying loyalty to the Red Sox. Anyway, we look forward to reviewing this new book for our readers.
