2014 is also the 70 Year Anniversary of the St. Louis Browns only pennant. Will be interesting to see if the Orioles even acknowledge it, given their past ignoring of Browns' history.
The Cubs will also celebrate 10 different decades during 10 different homestands with the Sunday finale featuring the uniform from that decade. The team will start by recognizing the 1910s.
Should the Orioles acknowledge it?
Say Montreal never gets a team, should the Expos history be forever lost because of that?
As an Oriole fan, it seems like that history belongs to St. Louis, not Baltimore.
So I guess my answer is in the affirmative, the history should be lost, except for those who seek to find it. JMO though.
That's how I feel. To draw a parallel to the NBA, I don't think Seattle basketball fans want Oklahoma City bragging about Gary Payton.
FWIW, the Mets took a bunch of crap around here for laying a claim to Jackie Robinson, rather than the Dodgers. I thought as New York's NL franchise, they had a legitimate stake (as they do some NY Giants history, though Wilpon seemingly wants no part of that).
