He broke with the Orioles in September 1972 and was the AL Rookie of the Year in 1973 (.337 average, 11 triples and 23 stolen bases)
After a couple of off seasons, Bumbry took over in center field and had some very productive seasons, such as .317 in 1977 and 318 in 1980.
He was a member of the Orioles that won the 1979 AL title and the 1983 World Series.
Bumbry retired in 1985 with a .281 average, 254 stolen bases, 1,422 hits in 1,496 games.
My memories of Bumbry are that he played hard and was very popular with the fans.
