Orioles Managers Don’t See Many Opening Days

Dave Trembley will manage his third Opening Day for the Orioles in 2010. That’s no small accomplishment for a Baltimore skipper.

The Orioles have had nine managers since the 1989 “Why Not?” season including Trembley. At the conclusion of Tuesday’s game Trembley will have managed more Opening Day games than five of his eight predecessors. He will have matched the tenure of two others.

Only Mike Hargrove has lasted more than three seasons in Baltimore in the past two decades.

The Rays should take heart in facing a Trembley squad. After all, both O’s openers during his tenure have come against the team that became that season’s ALCS Champion.

Here’s a rundown of Opening Day results for each Orioles manager since 1989:
