These are some of the most frequently asked questions we receive. Some of the most frequently given answers, too.
Q: Are you guys affiliated with the Orioles?
A: No, not in any way. We do this because we're fans. We're not endorsed by anybody.
Q: Don't I remember another site where this one used to be?
A: Probably. This site was formerly known as David's Unofficial Orioles Page. That's what the "DUOP" you'll see occasionally refers to.
Q: What is the Orioles' address?
A: 333 W. Camden St. Oriole Park at Camden Yards Baltimore, Md. 21201
Q: How do I get an autograph from Cal Ripken/Brady Anderson?
A: Write to him c/o the Orioles.
Q: I'm disabled. How can I get seats?
A: Don't contact Ticketmaster. Instead, call the box office directly at 410-685-9800. Tell them what you need. Obviously wheelchair accessible seating is limited, so the further in advance you call, the better.
Q: How many consecutive games did Cal Ripken play?
A: Cal Ripken played 2632 consecutive games, 502 more than Lou Gehrig did.
Q: Wow! Camden Yards is great! How can I take a tour?
Q: Didn't the Orioles once have four twenty game winners in the same season?
A: Yes. The year was 1971; the four pitchers were Jim Palmer, Dave McNally, Mike Cuellar, and Pat Dobson. The only other team ever to accomplish this feat was the 1920 White Sox, with Red Faber, Eddie Cicotte, Lefty Williams, and Dickie Kerr.
Q: Why is Mike Bordick on this team?
A: Why did the chicken cross the road?
Q: You guys have done a great job! What can I do to help you out?
A: Thank you. Submissions are always welcome; either on a one-time or regular basis. Please tell all your friends about our site. If you have any old Orioles yearbooks, media guides or the like, and wish to contribute them to the cause, be our guest.
Q: Yes, but I really want to help. What can I do?
A: We're looking for columnists or correspondents, particularly for minor league correspondents.
Q: What kind of idiot are you? You don't know anything about baseball!
A: (Polite version) I'm sorry you feel that way. (Real response) Bite me.
Q: Wow, your page is great! I'm so impressed! Where do I send money?
A: We've never actually heard this one, except in our dreams. But E-MAIL US and we'll tell you where to send the check.
