The Baltimore Orioles were a franchise in the National League from 1892-1899. Ned Hanlon coached them to three straight NL Pennants, in 1894, 1895, and 1896.

They had several Hall of Famers on these championship teams including Willie Keeler, John McGraw, and Hughie Jennings. They have been credited as the team that invented, or at least perfected, small ball style of play, including frequent sacrifice hitting, the hit-and-run and, of course, the Baltimore Chop.
