Uniform & Team History

John McGraw managed the 1901 Baltimore Orioles of the fledgling American League before moving on to a storied career with the New York Giants. After the Orioles went out of business in 1903, the rights to the franchise were sold to a group that started up the New York Highlanders — later renamed the Yankees.

Oldtime Game History

Former major-league infielder Lou Merloni, who played six seasons with the Boston Red Sox, wore this uniform when he came out of retirement to play in the 2008 Oldtime Baseball Game. The Framingham native, who went on to broadcast Red Sox games on radio and television, had a double in his first at-bat.

Harvard University pitcher Ben Crockett (’99) was drafted by the Colorado Rockies and later became senior vice president of baseball operations for the Red Sox, and Josh Klimkiewicz (’05), also of Harvard, played for the El Paso Diablos of the independent American Association. Brian Macchi of Boston College wore it when he was named MVP in ’01. He went on to play professionally for Johnstown of the independent Frontier League.
