BTW, I just realized both of your pro teams were formerly the Browns. The Orioles were the St Louis Browns.
The city of Baltimore didn't steal the Browns. The City was awarded a new franchise after the Browns were deactivated...semantics but believe me, the city and its residents had no idea that the Brownss were coming....until the announcement.
