The Orioles are welcoming back 23 Orioles Hall of Famers tonight to take part in a spectacular post-game event in celebration of the team’s 60th anniversary in Baltimore. Let’s take a look at some early lesser-known O’s history to celebrate!

Bob Boyd was the first black player to sign with the Chicago White Sox and then the first player in the modern history of the Baltimore Orioles to hit over .300 in a season (during his 5-season Orioles tenure, Boyd hit .301). In a pre-game event on September 24th, 1957, the city and team presented Bob Boyd and his wife several gifts ‘for his “baseball skill” and for his conduct “on and off the field”’, as Mayor Thomas D’Alesandro’s office stated (Afro-American (1893-1988); Sep 28, 1957). Please enjoy this silent footage of “Bob Boyd Night” at Memorial Stadium.
