Chronological Listing of BALTIMORE ORIOLES Deaths

RHP Howie Fox (3/1/21 - 10/9/55)

RHP Howie Fox (3/1/21 - 10/9/55)

Wow!  It’s been a bad weekend.  At press time, four former Major League Baseball players have died in the last couple days (Bobby Murcer, Chuck Stobbs, Dave Ricketts & Steve Mingori).  As a through-the-mail autograph collector, I felt like I somehow knew the first three names on this unfortunate list because they answered my fan mail in within the last couple years.  Just last month, I got a signature on my second or third try from John Buzhardt…just days before he died.  It just has me meditating on baseball & death.  Don’t mean to be morbid, as I have great respect for all members of the baseball family.
That said, here are the members of the modern (1954-present) Baltimore Orioles (players only) that are no longer with us.  They’re listed chronologically by their date of death.
