About the Orioles MiLB Affiliates

The Baltimore Orioles currently have seven teams under their affiliation umbrella, including the Triple-A Norfolk Tides, the Double-A Bowie Baysox, the High-A Frederick Keys, the Low-A Delmarva Shorebirds, and the Short Season Aberdeen Ironbirds. The Shorebirds have had a long, illustrious history with the Orioles stretching all the way back to 1997 as the first year of affiliation. Since then, the Shorebirds have won two South Atlantic League crowns as a Birds affiliate in their over 20 year history.

Delmarva has served as launch pad for many O's players on their road to the show. Since the beggining, the Shorebirds have welcomed future O's stars like Manny Machado, Erik Bedard, Brian Roberts, Nick Markakis, John Maine, Orlando Cabrera and Javier Vasquez. Just recently in 2019, the Shorebirds played host to the 2019 MLB #1 Overall Draft Pick and Orioles top prospect Adley Rutschman, while welcoming teammates like 2018 first round pick Grayson Rodriguez, and 2017 second round pick Adam Hall.
