I have partnered up with a representative at A&E Home Entertainment and MLB Productions to bring to you guys a great opportunity.
If you need an idea of something to get dear old Dad for Father’s Day then look no further. We are giving away 3 copies of Baltimore Orioles: Vintage World Series Films DVD. This would be a great gift for a dad who’s been a loyal O’s fan or you could even keep it for yourself! I won’t tell if you won’t!
Here is a description of the DVD:
All the glory and classic moments of the Orioles World Series Championships from 1966 to 1983 are digitally preserved on this official DVD.
Spanning both three decades and three managers — Hank Bauer, Earl Weaver, and Joe Altobelli — the enduring, common trait of the Baltimore Orioles® success was stellar pitching, well-timed power, and peerless defense.
The arrival of Frank Robinson in 1966 catapulted the Orioles to their first Fall Classic®. Baltimore’s pitchers dominated, holding the Los Angeles Dodgers® to just two runs — for the entire four-game World Series. Four Octobers later, the Birds power hitting and fielding were on display. The rally-ending defense of Brooks Robinson and the club’s 10 home runs in five games helped the O’s to a second Championship.
In 1983, the familiar formula and a familiar face held an encore. The Orioles staff, including Jim Palmer who provided a bridge to the 1966 victors, stifled the Philadelphia Phillies® allowing only seven runs in the five games.
1966 – BALTIMORE ORIOLES vs LOS ANGELES DODGERS
1970 – BALTIMORE ORIOLES vs CINCINNATI REDS
1983 – BALTIMORE ORIOLES vs PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES

Sounds pretty awesome, right? So do you want to know how you can get your hands on one of these DVDs? It’s simple.
All you have to do is email me your favorite memory at the ballpark, a picture of you with your dad at the ballpark, or both to be in consideration for winning. My email address is [email protected]
I will keep the contest going until Friday, June 10 (that’s almost 2 weeks). After that, I will go over all the entries and select 3 winners of whom will be notified and sent the DVD in time for Father’s Day, which is on June 19.
It’s that simple. So get thinking about your memory and find that great picture and enter this great contest!
