HBT - Rebuilding the Orioles in Peabody Heights

The Terrapins, they called them. Their home field appeared on the north side of East 29th Street, where Peabody Heights now serves its flagship beer, an American lager called Old Oriole Park Bohemian; the name came with the permission of Peter Angelos and the Orioles, of course.

“At the beginning we asked [to use the Orioles’ name],” O’Keefe recalls, “and Mr. Angelos said, ‘All right, I probably won’t sue you.’”

The Terrapins spent the spring of 1914 warming up in North Carolina, then headed north for their home opener against the Buffalo Blues, which 30,000 fans attended, many of them relegated to standing room only.
