The Orioles hadn't even thrown a postseason pitch in 2014, and already Orioles manager Buck Showalter has rolled out the heavy artillery. Around 4:15 p.m. on Wednesday, a few minutes before Showalter was supposed to speak to the media and a little less than an hour before the club's workout at Camden Yards began, Orioles Hall of Famer Brooks Robinson walked into the home clubhouse. Showalter had asked the club legend to address the team before the American League Division Series, which begins on Thursday at 5:37 p.m. at Camden Yards.

With nearly two dozen Orioles greats in attendance to commemorate the franchise's 60th anniversary, manager Buck Showalter felt a certain pressure for his club to perform Friday night against the St. Louis Cardinals. As the Orioles wore cream-colored replicas of the inaugural 1954 club's uniforms, the organization welcomed back 23 Orioles Hall of Famers with an elaborate postgame ceremony, complete with a fireworks display and laser-light show. But the fireworks started early.

When Ray Miller learned that he would be inducted into the Orioles Hall of Fame this August, the former manager and legendary pitching coach immediately thought of his late best friend, who is already in the club's Hall. "I got tears real quick and the first thing I thought about was Elrod Hendricks, my buddy," said Miller, who had three stints as the Orioles' pitching coach and managed the team in 1998 and 1999. "And I thought about Cal (Ripken) Sr., and Earl (Weaver) and (George)

Here are some quotes from Rich Dauer and Mike Mussina regarding their election into the Orioles Hall of Fame, which was announced today. The induction ceremony will be on Aug. 25. Mussina on whether he considers himself an Oriole or Yankee:  "I consider my career almost split evenly with Baltimore and New York. I have to say I consider myself both. To start in one place and have one organization to give you a chance to show what you think you can do and go out there and let you do it for that long of a period of time.

TORONTO -- Orioles manager Buck Showalter said there will be some pressure to perform well against the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday, when 23 Orioles Hall of Famers will be in attendance for the franchise's 60th anniversary ceremony after the game. “It's going to be some event, probably the highest pressure game for us for the year. We really need to win tomorrow,” Showalter said. “We've already talked to the players. That's a very easy [talk]. It's after the game. I hope it's not a long game, and I hope it's not extra innings.

Former Orioles great Jim Palmer had his three Cy Young Award plaques hanging on his wall. His Gold Glove awards are in storage. They're mementos of accomplishments he will always remember and cherish, but Palmer says he didn't need them to validate a 19-year Hall of Fame career. So Palmer is auctioning them off. Palmer isn't in financial need, but said the sale of the trophies would help him care for his 15-year-old autistic stepson and his grandchildren. A portion of the profits will also go to the autism project of Palm Beach County.

The Orioles are off today. And I'm traveling from Kansas City on my way to Pittsburgh. I could try to do some analysis on what the four-game split over the weekend against the Royals meant, but, frankly, I'm still trying to figure the Orioles out. They can hit. They can pitch. They can't seemingly do it all at once. And sometimes they can't do either. So I figured we'd switch to a little more pleasant topic in the bar today while we take a couple days to chew on peanuts and the Orioles' first seven weeks.

Sunday was the one-year anniversary of the death of Orioles Hall of Fame manager Earl Weaver, so it's natural to think about Weaver's impact on the franchise and the game this time of the year. A great memory of Weaver is just a click away on YouTube, where you can find his tirade with first-base umpire Bill Haller in a game against the Detroit Tigers on Sept. 17, 1980. After Haller called a balk on Orioles starter Mike Flanagan, Weaver strolled out of the dugout and just unleashed on Haller.

It has been a difficult season for Orioles slugger Chris Davis, but the first baseman hit two milestones Friday night with one swing. With his sixth-inning solo shot, Davis picked up his 20th homer of the season and 150th of his career. He was asked Saturday about whether No. 150 meant something to him. “I think it's a good number. It's not real high. It's not low,” he said. “But I think it is just one of those things that you can look back at the body of work and really appreciate everything that has gone into it.” Davis hit a major league-best 53 homers last season but has struggled much of this year.

On Tuesday, the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association named center fielder Adam Jones as the Orioles' recipient of the 2014 Heart and Hustle Award. The honor values athletes who “demonstrate a passion for the game of baseball and best embody the values, spirit and tradition of the game” and is the only big league award voted on by former players. Jones, along with the 29 winners from the other clubs, was selected for his work ethic and passion for baseball. “He represents all the best qualities of a teammate and competitor,” Brooks Robinson, Orioles Hall of Fame third baseman and Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association president, said in a statement.

OAKLAND - The atmosphere at the O.co Coliseum during the Orioles' workout on Thursday evening was more like one that took place on the back fields of the team's spring training complex in February rather than the end of the All-Star break.  Orioles manager Buck Showalter held court near the pitcher's mound and instructed players on pickoff plays and bunt defense. Down the right-field line, pitchers took turns throwing bullpen sessions. The Orioles will begin the second half Friday here in Oakland, opening a three-city, 10-game West Coast trip against three teams that would be in the postseason if the season ended today - the Oakland Athletics, Los Angeles Angels and Seattle Mariners.

HOUSTON - When he became the first black manager in the Major Leagues the 1975 as a player/manager with the Cleveland Indians, Orioles Hall of Famer Frank Robinson was shocked to see that the Indians still specified a player's race on their scouting reports. Yes, Robinson - who as a player won two World Series titles as a player with the Orioles and won the 1966 Triple Crown - broke down the barrier for future black managers, but was immediately struck with the realizations of how some things still needed changing.

The man who replaced Cal Ripken Jr. at shortstop in 1997, and had one of the greatest defensive seasons at the position in 2002, will be inducted into the Orioles' Hall of Fame this August. Mike Bordick , who played with the Orioles for parts of six seasons from 1997 to 2002, will receive the honor on Aug. 13 before the team's game against the Detroit Tigers at Camden Yards. Also to be honored that night will be head athletic trainer Richie Bancells , who will receive the Herb Armstrong Award for contributions to the organization from non-uniformed personnel.

Orioles Hall of Fame infielder Cal Ripken Jr. apparently would trade his career for New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter, who started his farewell season Tuesday night. In the beginning of an interview on the Dan Patrick Show on Wednesday, Ripken -- while laughing -- said that he'd "rather have Derek's" career, when asked by the host. "And for this reason: A bad year for Derek is losing in the first round of the playoffs," Ripken said in the inteview. "So I was totally jealous of the fact that he had a chance to perform and play in the playoffs -- everybody's wish and dream is. I had a few chances, which was great, but I wanted a whole lot more than that.

SARASOTA, FLA. -- Orioles manager Buck Showalter said he feels bad for the national attention generated from  the one-page writing assignment he gave to minor leaguer Josh Hart on Orioles Hall of Famer Frank Robinson. The story picked up steam on Tuesday as it was promoted on the Yahoo home page and was mentioned by Keith Olbermann on his nightly ESPN television show. It all started off innocently enough. Robinson was at Orioles camp on Monday to speak to the team under the invitation of executive vice president Dan Duquette . Hart, a 19-year-old center fielder who was the 37th overall pick in last year's draft, was making a rare appearance at major league camp along with a group of fellow minor leaguers.
