A year after the dreadful 1988 season that started 0-21, the Baltimore Orioles shocked the world with a squad of young players and a few cast-offs who managed to stay in playoff contention until the bitter end.

As the wins kept piling up, Baltimore collectively asked, “Why Not?” The 1989 Orioles might not be the best team in club history, but they did renew the fans’ faith in Baltimore baseball and inspired an incredible, only-in-the-’80s song and home video.

Trump, then approaching the height of his (inflated) celebrity as a real estate mogul, pointed to a woman and tells Epstein, “She’s hot.” Moments later, he said something that causes Epstein to double over with laughter.

The Orioles, as you may have heard, are not very good. According to an article published in The Ringer this morning, the 2019 Orioles could very well go down as the worst team in professional baseball history.

But the remainder of the season isn’t going to play itself, and the marketing department at the B&O Warehouse is doing its best to get butts in the seats.

To that end, the team today announced two additional promo nights for the second half of the season, one celebrating Netflix’s ’80s sci-fi series “Stranger Things” and another for professional wrasslin’.
