How to be a Diehard O's Fan

In this second hour of Midday Friday, a treat for Baltimore Baseball Fans: Dan Connolly, the Sun’s national baseball writer and Orioles reporter, joins us with a list of 100 things he thinks Orioles Fans should know and do before they die. Part history, part trivia, Dan Connolly’s book -- if you’ll pardon the baseball expression -- covers the fundamentals, from the glory years of the late 60s and early 70s, to the Ripken era and the team’s last World Series in 1983, through the time of Adam Jones, Buck Showalter and the 2014 run for the American League championship. Earl Weaver’s fake heart attack to Eddie Murray’s 500th home run, from Why Not to We Won’t Stop -- some of the 100 things every Orioles dan should know. Dan Connolly on Midday Friday after the news.
