Don Larsen, the last active major leaguer who played for the Browns, is released by the Orioles. As a rookie in 1953, the Michigan City, Indiana, native posted a 7-12 record for the hapless franchise, which lost 100 games in its final season in St. Louis.

On the day he is fitted for his big-league Orioles uniform, Steve Dalkowski, pitching in an exhibition against the Yankees, feels something pop in his left elbow. The fireballer from New Britain, Connecticut, who once struck out 24 batters in a minor league game, will never appear in the major leagues.

Jim Palmer’s attempted comeback at the age of 45 comes to an end when the newly elected Hall of Famer tears his hamstring warming up before an exhibition appearance against Boston. The Orioles right-hander, who hadn’t thrown a major league pitch in seven seasons, keeps his 268-152 and 2.86 ERA, which he accomplished during a 19-year career on the mound, intact.

In the last inning of an intrasquad exhibition game of the International League’s Baltimore Orioles, the recently-signed George Herman Ruth Jr. hits his first professional home run, a 400 foot shot at the Cape Fear Fairgrounds in Fayetteville. A state marker claims the famous moniker ‘Babe’ was given to the 19-year-old during his stay in this North Carolina city when his teammates teased him about being adopted by the team’s manager Jack Dunn, who legally became the parent of St. Mary’s Industrial School to keep him on the club.

After his body temperature soars to 108 degrees, Orioles pitching prospect Steve Belcher dies of multi-organ failure following a spring training workout in Fort Lauderdale. Early speculation is the 23 year-old expectant father’s death may have been caused by ephedrine, the dietary supplement linked to heatstroke and heart attacks.

In one of the worst trades ever made in baseball history, the Orioles send pitchers Curt Schilling and Pete Harnish along with outfielder Steve Finley to the Astros for first baseman Glenn Davis. Davis, who averaged 27 home runs in six seasons playing in the Astrodome with Houston, will hit only 24 dingers in three injury-filled years as Schilling becomes one of the most dominant pitchers in the game, and Harnish and Finley develop into solid major league performers.
