However this season ends up, the Baltimore Orioles have been one of the league's best stories in 2023. Thanks to an almost unprecedented amount of young talent breaking out and leading the way, the Orioles are now on the cusp of an AL East title and are among the favorites to make it to the World Series this season.
A big reason for the team's success this season has been the play of Gunnar Henderson. Not only does he lead the team in most offensive categories including fWAR (4.5), but Gunnar has a real chance of joining an elite group of Orioles who have hit 30 home runs and score 100 runs in a season as he sits at 27 and 94 respectively. He needs to get a move on to get there, but Henderson would join an impressive group of legends if he can pull it off.

This is actually a pretty tough club to get into overall. Not only does a player need to have enough consistent pop to get to 30 home runs, but he also needs the on-base skills and preferably some speed to score 100 runs in a season. It certainly doesn't hurt if there are hitters behind them that can actually do some damage.
Let's take a look at the only Orioles players in franchise history to get 30 homers and 100 runs in a single season.
