About Birdland Stats

As a Maryland native, I always loved the Orioles but after 18 years of living in the Old Line State I moved away for college and didn't return. Not being able to attend games was rough, so I searched for an outlet to connect with the O's. As someone who loves numbers, I naturally found a hobby in searching for weird and impressive Orioles stats. If you want join-in on the fun, follow me on Twitter at @BirdlandStats.
