From the Northern League's return to service in 1946, til it's final demise in 1971, Aberdeen served the Orioles / Browns franchise continuously for a total of 26 years.... the longest and strongest affiliation in the Northern League's history. During that time, 60 men were sent to the Major Leagues... many of whom would make their mark Major League Baseball and the even the Hall of Fame.
