60 Years Ago the Browns Became the Orioles

The Baltimore Orioles, much like many teams around the league, have worn a patch on both sleeves of their jersey for the past few years commemorating something, and 2014 will be no different.

For the fourth consecutive season, Baltimore will wear a patch on their right sleeve in 2014 and this one is quite important and historic. The patch the Orioles will wear next season will commemorate the 60th anniversary of the St. Louis Browns move to Baltimore.

The Orioles, who were known as the St. Louis Browns, moved to Baltimore from St. Louis and played their first season in 1954. Since then, the franchise has won six American League pennants and three World Series Championships, the latest coming in 1983.
The 60th anniversary patch has yet to be leaked, but it's expected to be a unique one.
