An Overview of the Team

On April 3, 1983 the Baltimore Orioles left Spring Training with much the same team that fell just a game short of the playoffs the year before. Of the Orioles starting in the 1982 Opening Day lineup only Lenn Sakata and Al Bumbry would lose their opening day spots in 1983.[16] Terry Crowley was the last player cut on Spring Training, and on his way out of the clubhouse he predicted an Orioles championship, "The shame of it is," he told a ''Sun reporter, "the Orioles are going to win in it all this year, and Joe is going to do a tremendous job"[17] Still, the team was an up and coming squad, in fact, no Oriole would be voted on to the All Star team’s starting lineup.[18] However, the team featured three future Hall of Famers:

  • Cal Ripken who had won Rookie of the Year honors the year before completed his transition from Third Base to Short Stop playing his first full season at his new position[19]
  • Perennial slugger Eddie Murray led the league in home runs[20]
  • The aging Jim Palmer started only 11 games but would come out of the bullpen for his final career victory in the World Series[21]

While the Orioles fielded a team similar to the team fielded in 1982 Altobelli put his own mark on the squad by breaking camp with a four man rotation which occasionally increased to five pitchers rather than the three man rotation preferred by Weaver.[22]

Starting Pitching

One significant difference between the 1982 Baltimore Orioles and the 1983 Baltimore Orioles was Altobelli's willingness to use different starting pitchers. Ten different, Orioles pitches would take the mound to start the game in 1983 whereas in 1982 only six players got the starting nod.
