Moose is heading to the Baseball Hall Of Fame!

It was announced on Tuesday, Jan. 22 that former Orioles pitcher Mike Mussina received 76.7% of the vote (75% is what is needed) to join the elite group of players in the Baseball Hall Of Fame. Mussina spent more than half of his career pitching for the O's going 147-81 with a 3.53 ERA, 45 complete games and 15 shutouts. Mussina was drafted by the Orioles as the 20th overall pick in 1990 and spent 10 years in Baltimore before becoming a free agent in 2001 and going to the New York Yankees.

Moose joins fellow former Orioles Harold Baines and Lee Smith as 2019 inductees and is the 17th player overall from the Orioles organization to make it to the HoF.
