From 33rd Street to the Camden Yards: An Oral History of the Baltimore Orioles
In From 33rd Street to Camden Yards, John Eisenberg, a critically acclaimed sports writer and longtime sports columnist for the Baltimore Sun, brings to life the epic saga of baseball's winningest franchise from 1960-97, using the best sources possible--the voices of the players, managers, coaches, owners, front office officials, and others who have helped make the Orioles a secular religion in a city that calls itself Baseball City, USA. Relying on storytelling flair, persistent research, and an eye for detail that marked his much-praised football memoir, Cotton Bowl Days, and utilizing knowledge and insights culled from fifteen years of award-winning reporting, Eisenberg turns dozens of hours of interviews with Hall of Famers and reserve infielders alike into a vivid, fast-moving oral history--the first ever of the Orioles. John Eisenberg has had exclusive access to such star Orioles as Earl Weaver, Ken Singleton, Cal Ripken, Jr., Jim Palmer, and Frank Robinson--as well as to current owner Peter Angelos. In total, he interviewed over 90 individuals for this book, making From 33rd Street to Camden Yards a rich, rewarding book that defines the Orioles and the Orioles experience.
