An Oriole Fan's Creed

Written by: Peter Coolbaugh


I believe in baseball, the great American past time.

I believe in the Baltimore Orioles, a charter member of the American League.

I believe in Memorial Stadium, the magnificent home of the Orioles for 37 years.

I believe in The Oriole Way, and that “perfect practice makes perfect.”

I believe in pitching, defense, and the 3-run homer and in the wisdom of the Earl of Baltimore.

I believe in the legendary play of Brooks and Frank, Palmer, Steady Eddie, and the Iron Man.

I believe in Oriole Park at Camden Yards, still the crown jewel of all major league venues.

I believe in summer nights, pennant drives, The Streak, and Oriole Magic.

I believe in the enthusiasm of Wild Bill Hagy and I still thank God that I’m a country boy.

I believe in the All-Star appearances, Gold Gloves, Silver Sluggers, Cy Young Awards, MVPs, and the Triple Crown which are all part of Orioles lore.

I believe in the Wild Card, Division Titles, AL Pennants, and World Series Titles.

I believe that baseball is a team sport where both winning and losing are part of the game.

I believe that only through suffering and hard times can absolute victory be achieved.

I believe that championship caliber baseball will return to Charm City.

I will remain loyal to the orange and black for the remainder of my days.
