Video: looking back at the Royals’ and Orioles’ considerable ALCS history

8 Comments

Maybe it’s not terribly recent, but both the Orioles and the Royals have a ton of history in the ALCS. And today MLB Productions has two great videos with highlights of those appearances.

Fun stuff abounds here, including shots of young Tony La Russa and Bobby Cox losing. Angry George Steinbrenner reaction shots. An Orioles highlight that, production-wise, seems like it’s from 100 years ago yet mentions Jim Palmer, who is a guy I remember playing in my lifetime. Sort of disorienting.

First the Orioles:
