Baltimore Orioles 1966 Home lightweight wool flannel blend jersey # 05
In 1966, the Orioles captured their first American League Pennant in Baltimore, finishing the season with a nine game lead over the Minnesota Twins. In their first World Series appearance since their days in St. Louis, the Orioles defeated the World Champion Los Angeles Dodgers in a four game sweep. Defensively the Orioles were led by Brooks Robinson. Known as ‘Hoover’, not for political affiliation but for his amazing defensive play, Robinson had the second 100-plus RBI season of his career as he collected his sixth consecutive Gold Glove Award.
