This past Friday (5/4/12), the Sunpapers recognized Jered Weaver's no-hitter by listing "no-hit" blurbs with the MLB standings.
How did they come up with "nine no-hitters" for the Baltimore Orioles? The Orioles have had three classic no-hitters and two where more than one pitcher combined for a no-hitter.
Shame on the person who wrote this copy. They added the four no-hitters compiled by the St. Louis Browns to the five thrown by the Baltimore Orioles. Orioles fans have no identity whatsoever with the hapless St. Louis Browns. Heck, there were only nine players who played for the 1953 Browns and the 1954 Orioles.
I'm OK with leaving the Browns history in St. Looey just like we did with that other Browns team that moved to Baltimore.
