Orioles Are Approaching Major Home Run Milestone

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The Baltimore Orioles are approaching an important home run milestone.

To date, the Orioles have hit 9,995 regular season home runs in club history, and are just 5 homers shy of the milestone.

On Thursday, August 3, newcomer Tim Beckham hit the clubs’ 2,500th home run at Camden Yards.

The Orioles would become one of four Major League Baseball clubs to reach the 10,000 home run milestone since 1954, joining the New York Yankees, Detroit Tigers, and Boston Red Sox.

To commemorate the moment, the club is encouraging fans to predict who will hit the 10,000th regular season home run in Orioles history (since 1954) for a chance to win unique prizes.
