SUNDAY, APRIL 28: BALTIMORE WOES

Profile America — Sunday, April 28th.  The agony of defeat became particularly acute on this date a quarter century ago, when the American League's Baltimore Orioles lost to the Minnesota Twins, 4-2. The loss was the 21st straight defeat for the Orioles, and set a most unwelcome league record for consecutive losses. Baltimore ended the string the next day by beating the Chicago White Sox, 9-0.  They won only 53 more games that season but the timely win over Chicago helped the franchise avoid the all-time record for consecutive losses.  That streak of 23 belongs to the national league's Philadelphia Phillies in 1961. There are 814 professional sports teams and clubs in the U.S., 272 of them are baseball squads. Profile America is in its 16th year as a public service of the U.S. Census Bureau.
