The Baltimore Orioles posted the worst record in baseball this season at 47-115, a team record for losses, and sat 61 games out of first place in the American League East. O’s manager Buck Showalter and general manager Dan Duquette’s contracts expired at the end of the season and they will not be brought back.
But on Friday, the Orioles felt like champions, at least for a few hours. The Stanley Cup made an unannounced visit to the yard.

Keeper of the Cup Phil Pritchard posted photos to Twitter of the Cup inside and outside the historic ballpark, and featured a plethora of odes to Cal Ripken, Jr.

The Oriole Bird posed with the NHL’s championship trophy and held up an ALL CAPS towel.
Several people around the park also got an opportunity as well.
