Your Delmarva Shorebirds are the Class "A" Minor League Baseball affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles. Located in Salisbury, MD, the team calls Arthur W. Perdue Stadium it's home. The team first opened it's gates in April of 1996, beginning as a Montreal Expos affiliate, a relationship that lasted just a single season as a deal was struck to make the Shorebirds an affiliate of the Orioles Organization in 1997.

The organization is owned and operated by 7th Inning Stretch LP, which also owns the Stockton Ports and Everett Aquasox, both of which are located on the West Coast.

Since 1996 the 'Birds have been crowned champions twice, the first coming in 1997 and the latest in the year 2000. Some memorable Shorebirds who have gone on to play in the big leagues are players like Erik Bedard, Brian Roberts, Nick Markakis, John Maine, Orlando Cabrera and Javier Vasquez among others.
