The Orioles drew an announced 38,329 for Sunday's finale at Camden Yards for an overall attendance of 2,464,473 in the 80-date season. That easily surpassed their 2012 total of 2.36 million despite having one fewer date (the doubleheader this year on May 1 against the Pittsburgh Pirates was a single-gate admission). This is the highest total attendance the Orioles have had in a season since they drew 2.625 million in 2005. This year's average attendance of 30,806 is the first time Camden Yards has averaged more than 30,000 since 2005.

The Orioles' regular-season home finale Sunday afternoon ended with a whimper, a 3-2 loss to the Boston Red Sox. But they'll be back. For just the second time in Camden Yards' 23-season history, the Orioles ended their home schedule knowing for sure that they would return for a playoff game. Only in 1997 - the other time they were American League East division champions while playing at Camden Yards - did they know that the last regularly scheduled game in Baltimore wasn't their final one for the year.

Steve Pearce got the message. The Orioles already have clinched the American League East. He was celebrating Tuesday night. But, to paraphrase what the kids like to say these days at Camden Yards, “Pearce Won't Stop.” Pearce hit his 19th and 20th home runs Wednesday to help the Orioles beat the Toronto Blue Jays, 6-1, at Camden Yards. He's batting .424 with four homers, four doubles and 11 RBIs in his past 10 games. “It's just great to contribute on this team and win ballgames,” Pearce said.

The Orioles clinched their first division title since 1997 Tuesday night at Camden Yards, and instead of experiencing it live and as human beings, many of us who were lucky enough to be present soaked it all in through our cell phone screens. Here's a compilation of the best such pictures from Twitter. The moment. http://t.co/3FYsuIacxD (Karl Merton Ferron/ @baltimoresun ) pic.twitter.com/Okqp8FsZGL - Baltimore Sun Sports (@BaltSunSports) September 17, 2014 From earlier, Buck Showalter looks upon all he has made as his team celebrated on infield #orioles pic.twitter.com/ZnvnVUppoV - Jon Meoli (@JonMeoli)

After the Orioles drained bottles of champagne inside the home clubhouse of Camden Yards, leaving behind not a dry spot in a room littered with corks and empty beer bottles, they ran toward the dugout for a postgame party that Baltimore had long awaited. They celebrated their first American League East division title in 17 years Tuesday night after their 8-2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays with their hometown fans at Camden Yards. Their coronation as newly recrowned kings of the AL East came in front of a sea of orange -- an announced 34,297 -- entirely on its feet, standing as right-hander Tommy Hunter closed out the game with a grounder to first base.

Somehow, some way, the Orioles are the 2014 American League East champions. With the embattled Ubaldo Jimenez going five innings for the victory and scrap-heap addition Jimmy Paredes hitting a solo homer and cut-and-re-signed first baseman Steve Pearce smashing a three-run blast, the Orioles won Tuesday night's clincher, 8-2, over the Toronto Blue Jays the way they've done it all year. Power, good pitching and a pass-the-baton offense - which included a three-run triple by scorching newcomer Alejandro De Aza in the seventh to put the game and title out of reach.

So let me tell you about my experiences at Camden Yards before I respond to the recent commentary suggesting Orioles fans should not cheer for Derek Jeter in his last appearance at the ballpark ( "Good riddance, Jeter," Sept. 11). I went to a game there in the early 1990s when a friend of mine invited me and one-handed pitcher Jim Abbott and outfielder Danny Tartabull were on the Yankees. My friend who is a Yankee fan invited two Orioles fans unbeknownst to me. Jim Abbott was throwing a shutout and the Yankees were up 6-0 by the third inning.

All the postseason math - all the talk of magic numbers and scoreboard watching - is now a thing of the past. Just one win now separates the Orioles and their first American League East division title since 1997. Opening up their three-game series with the second-place Toronto Blue Jays on Monday night at Camden Yards, the Orioles' path to the postseason was simple: Win two of the games and punch a ticket to the playoffs. And the Orioles took one humongous step Monday toward winning the division with their 5-2 win over Toronto, giving the club an opportunity to clinch a division title with a win Tuesday.

New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter said his final visit to Camden Yards this week brought back memories of his first full season in pinstripes. That year, he played against the Orioles in the American League Championship Series and he was in awe of Cal Ripken, Jr., whom Jeter still regards as a role model. “I was sort of thrust right into it,” Jeter said before his final regular-season game at Camden Yards on Sunday night. “Baltimore had great teams. I remember coming here in 1996 in my first full season.
