Baltimore Orioles Owner Tops List of Baseball's Political Donors - chicagotribune.com "Angelos has continued to give ever since, and if he was hoping his political donations would create good karma for his team, he was wrong."

On this day in 1959, the Orioles became the first team to execute a triple play on opening day, but were thumped by the Senators anyways; in 1970, Don Buford hit home runs from both sides of the plate on the way to a career high at the time; in 1998, Cal Ripken, Jr. passed Lou Gehrig on the all time home run list.

It's the birthday of Brian Graham, Dennis Sarfate and Adam Loewen. Jerry Hoffberger died today in 1999.
