Paying homage to their fellow Sportsman's Park dwellers who flew east and landed in Baltimore following the 1953 season, the St. Louis Cardinals hosted the upstart Baltimore Orioles two days prior to the start of the 1954 campaign. This dated 4/11/54 scorecard represents the first contest for the Orioles following their Spring Training schedule. The lightly pencil-scored gatefold scorecard exhibits stirring baseball details and bright color accents. The publication is folded in four places confirming its attendance at the exhibition contest. Interesting slice of Charm City history.
