It’s quiet in Birdland, but hopefully not for long.

Happy Sunday, Camden Chatters! Did you remember to turn back those clocks? I am not looking forward to it getting dark so early, that’s for sure. But it does make it easier to get up for work in the morning.

We’re still in the midst of nothing happening in the off season for the Orioles and most teams. Hopefully that will change soon so we can finally have something to talk about again! The Nationals had their World Series parade yesterday, I saw several of my Facebook friends who I am certain used to be Orioles fans posting pictures from it.

Anyway.

Is today your birthday? Happy birthday! You have several Orioles birthday buddies. Armando Benitez, who spent the first five seasons of his career with the Orioles, turns 47 years old today. Since it’s his birthday I won’t mention my lasting memory of him.

It’s also the birthday of Mark Corey (64), who appeared in 59 games for the 1979-81 Orioles; Dwight Evans (68) who finished his 20-year career with the Orioles in 1991; Ken Holtzman (74), who pitched for the 1976 Orioles; and Earl Robinson (b. 1936, d. 2014), who played in 162 games for the Birds from 1961-62, 1964.
