By Will DeBoer | January 16, 2020 10:56 AM ET

We're off and running with our Shorebirds Silver Anniversary Team. After opening our roster last week with one half of the team's battery, we now turn our attention to the infield, starting with the corner position that perennially serves as Delmarva's power plant.

Silver Anniversary Team: Chance Sisco, Catcher

Sisco won Delmarva's first batting title in 2014

By Will DeBoer | January 9, 2020 9:00 AM ET

Casey Stengel once opined, "You have to have a catcher, because if you don't, you're likely to have a lot of passed balls." Imprudent of us to doubt the Old Perfesser, the backstop position is where we begin unveiling the Shorebirds' Silver Anniversary team for Delmarva's 25th season in the South Atlantic League.

The Twelve Days of Shoremas, Part II: Birdy Boogaloo

Celebrate the holidays with more of our Shorebirds-themed song!

(Delmarva Shorebirds)

By Will DeBoer | December 19, 2019 10:33 AM ET

Last week we introduced the Shorebirds' take on a beloved Christmas classic, and a sensation was born. "The Twelve Days of Shoremas" shot to the top of the (totally not-made-up) Billboard MiLB Holiday Standards chart, becoming the envy of minor league markets coast-to-coast and warming the hearts of literally dozens. Several teams tried emulating the Shorebirds with their own holiday rewrites, resulting in hundreds of hours in lost productivity and even two arrests. The less said about "Rockin' Around the Sod Poodle Tree," the better.

The Twelve Days of Shoremas, Part I

Celebrate the holidays with a Shorebirds-themed song!

By Will DeBoer | December 12, 2019 9:31 AM ET

One of the most inescapable parts of the holiday season is annual unboxing of every Christmas song you've ever heard. From the parades to the malls to every other radio station, our Decembers are soundtracked by Bing and Mariah and 15 new versions of that Wham song whose lyrics still don't make sense (isn't giving your heart to someone special where the problem started last Christmas, George Michael?).

Mountcastle Blasts Way to IL MVP

Former Shorebird added to 40-man roster after mammoth '19

By Will DeBoer | December 5, 2019 9:11 AM ET

In 2019, a fresh-faced first baseman took the National League by storm, smashing home runs at a record pace and ultimately cakewalking to Rookie of the Year. The baseball world sat up and noticed as the Mets' Pete Alonso obliterated the rookie home run record and led the majors with 53 round-trippers. While Alonso made headlines in the Senior Circuit, the Orioles hope that their own soon-to-be major-league first baseman will do the same in the Junior Circuit in 2020.

Center fielder first 2017 Shorebird on Orioles' 40-man

While nobody from the 2017 Delmarva Shorebirds has made it to the major leagues as of the end of 2019, one of that team's youngest members has taken perhaps his most important step yet in making it all the way to Baltimore. And in the relative calm of the offseason, no less.
