My Father’s Memories of Working with Carl Yastrzemski at Kahn’s-Hillshire Farm in the Early Eighties

Boston Red Sox outfielder Carl Yastrzemski worked as a spokesman for Kahn’s-Hillshire Farm.  Being a well-known baseball player with a memorable Polish last name, Yastrzemski was the perfect fit to help the company grow its kielbasa and smoked sausage market share.  When Yastrzemski and the Red Sox came into town to face the Baltimore Orioles, my father got the unique opportunity and rare privilege to work alongside and get to know a future Hall of Fame baseball player.  Over the years, my father has recounted his memories of Yastrzemski and shared his autographs, pictures, and other keepsakes given to him by the Red Sox legend.

Duquette elaborates on economics of rebuild, murky on future of homegrown players at ‘State of the Orioles’

...So we’re redirecting those resources into our scouting operation, into our recruiting, into our player development. We’re going to be active on the international recruiting market. We’re going to be active in more technology and facilities, in our training program…

This Orioles Defense May Be the Worst We’ve Ever Seen

... these Orioles are mind-bogglingly bad at catching balls put in play. Orioles fielders have combined for negative-84 runs of defensive value compared with the average team, per the advanced stat defensive runs saved. That is already one of the 10 worst totals… At their current pace, they will finish the season with negative-160 DRS—40 worse than the previous record holder, the 2005 Yankees.

Orioles’ Duquette: ‘We’ve got to put a little bit sharper focus on the future’

Duke says:

“But the way I’ve always looked at it, there’s two ways to look at it. You’re trying to improve your team to be competitive and win now, or you’re trying to improve your team to be competitive for the long-term. And we’ve always tried to be very competitive here during my time here in the present. But it doesn’t look like this 2018 ballclub is going to have what it takes to be that type of contending club. So, we’re faced with the reality of seeing where we can improve it so that we can get back and be that contending club.”

After a competent 2+ week stretch, the Orioles have lost 7 straight and have the worst record in the major leagues. Chris Davis, whom Showalter tapped as the leadoff hitter coming out of spring training, is at .154/.234/.239 and he’s not alone on the team south of the Mendoza line.

OTP 2018 May 21: President takes British royalty to a baseball game, May 15, 1991

The 65-year-old queen, dressed in a below-the-knee blue and red dress, black gloves and three strands of pearls, entered the Orioles dugout along the third base line. She formed a receiving line with her husband and the president, clad in a navy blazer, and Barbara Bush. The first lady wore a blue and white floral print dress.

While the VIP guests took their positions designated by their names on 3-by-5 cards, the song “Brown-Eyed Girl” played over the stadium’s public-address system. Their images appeared on the video screen in right-center field.

“I’ve been playing baseball for 10 years, and I’m used to a normal atmosphere,” said Cal Ripken Jr., the Orioles shortstop, after exchanging handshakes. “This is a lot different. There’s a lot of excitement.”
