Baltimore Orioles: Top Ten Home Run Hitters In Franchise History
2. Eddie Murray– 343 home runs
Originally drafted by the Orioles in the third round of the 1973 draft, Murray played in Baltimore from 1977-1988 and once again in 1996. He appeared in eight All-Star games, was a World Series champion in 1983, won three Silver Sluggers and three Gold Glove Awards, and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2003.
Murray wasted no time in making his presence known on the diamond, winning the 1977 Rookie of the Year Award behind a 27 home run season. He would go on to hit at least 22 home runs in all but one season with the Orioles.
His 343 home runs in Baltimore was part of his 504 total homers and 3,255 career hits. Hank Aaron, Alex Rodriguez, Willie Mays, Rafael Palmeiro, and Albert Pujols are the only other players in major league history to be a part of the 500 HR/3,000 hit club.
