How Many Baltimore Orioles are in the Hall of Fame?
Currently, Six current Baltimore Orioles players are in the Baseball Hall of Fame.
Cal Ripken Jr
He’s baseball’s Iron Man, and one of the greatest Orioles players in history. Orioles fans learned a lot from him because he played the game the proper way and taught them to respect it.
From 1983 to 2001, Cal was a member of the All-Star team every year. When the Baltimore Orioles won their third World Series triumph in franchise history in 1983, he was named American League Rookie of the Year and American League MVP, respectively.
Frank Robinson, a former Baltimore Oriole, is one of the game’s most underappreciated players.
When the Orioles acquired him in 1966 he went on to capture the Triple Crown and the American League MVP while helping the Orioles win their first World Series championship in franchise history.
In 1956, Robinson was named the National League’s Rookie of the Year and went on to win the league’s MVP title in 1961 with a 1.015 on-base percentage, 37 home runs, and 124 RBI.
In 1966, he became the first player to win MVP honors in both the American League and the National League with his AL MVP award. He’s the only player to have done it to this day.
As a defender, Robinson is up there with the best of them all. A three-best baseman’s ever fielding percentage of.971 still ranks him fourth in MLB history at the time of his retirement.
Robinson is a Hall of Famer in every sense of the word. He played in fifteen straight All-Star games, earned sixteen straight Gold Gloves, and was named the American League MVP in 1964, among many other accolades and distinctions.
It ranks second in team history with a 78.4 career BWAR. With 2,896 games played and 10,654 at-bats, Cal Ripken Jr. is second only to him in Oriole history in terms of games played and at-bats in terms of hits and runs scored (1,357).
In 1983, Brooks was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame for his contributions to the game.
Whether you consider Jim Palmer or Mike Mussina as the best pitcher in Orioles history is likely determined by when you were born.
Over the course of a nineteen-year career, Palmer threw 3,948 innings for the Orioles, posting a 2.86 ERA. He led the Orioles with 268 victories and 2,212 strikeouts.
Steady Eddie was a rookie in 1977, he had an.868 OPS with 343 home runs, winning the Rookie of the Year honor.
While he spent the final nine years of his career with four different organizations (Dodgers, Indians, Mets, and Angels), the bulk of Murray’s contribution to his career was made in Baltimore.
There are 27 players in the 500-homer club, he has 3,255 career hits, and he owns the record for most games played as a first baseman in Major League Baseball history.
At least 25 home runs in each of his twelve seasons, and he also had six seasons with at least 100 RBI.
Earl Weaver is the only player on this list who has never played for the Baltimore Orioles. His tenure with the Orioles spanned a decade, from 1968 to 1982, then he took over as manager again in 1985 and 1986.
The Orioles won the World Series in 1970 thanks to Weaver’s contributions to the team’s success during his stay in Baltimore.
Weaver won six division crowns and four American League pennants in his seventeen years with the Orioles, compiling a winning percentage of .583 in the process.
In 1996, Weaver was enshrined in Cooperstown’s Sports Hall of Fame. As a manager, he was excellent, but ultimately, the players were responsible for the success or failure of a team.
