1966 - BALTIMORE ORIOLES vs LOS ANGELES DODGERS 1970 - BALTIMORE ORIOLES vs CINCINNATI REDS 1983 - BALTIMORE ORIOLES vs PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES All the glory and classic moments of the Orioles World Series Championships from 1966 to 1983 are digitally preserved on this official DVD. Spanning three decades and three managers--Hank Bauer, Earl Weaver, and Joe Altobelli--the enduring, common trait of the Baltimore Orioles® success was stellar pitching, well-timed power, and peerless defense. The arrival of Frank Robinson in 1966 catapulted the Orioles to their first Fall Classic®. Baltimore's pitchers dominated, holding the Los Angeles Dodgers® to just two runs--for the entire four-game World Series. Four Octobers later, the Birds power hitting and fielding were on display. The rally-ending defense of Brooks Robinson and the club's 10 home runs in five games helped the O's to a second Championship. In 1983, the familiar formula and a familiar face held an encore. The Orioles staff, including Jim Palmer who provided a bridge to the 1966 victors, stifled the Philadelphia Phillies® allowing only seven runs over the five games.
Vintage World Series Films: Orioles
is a two-hour compilation of the official films summarizing the highlights of Baltimore's world championships in 1966, 1970, and 1983. The core of the earlier teams were sluggers Frank Robinson and Boog Powell, great defensive players such as Brooks Robinson (whose play at third base helped him win World Series MVP in 1970), and the great pitching staff including Jim Palmer and Mike Cuellar. Palmer was back in 1983 accompanied by future Hall of Famers Cal Ripken Jr. and Eddie Murray, and more stout pitching arms such as Mike Flanagan, Denny Martinez, Scott McGregor, and Mike Boddicker. Fans of the Orioles from this era can also pick up their complete 1979 World Series
against the Pittsburgh Pirates. --David Horiuchi
