Oriole #750

Val Majewski became the 750th player to appear in a game for the Orioles when he made his MLB debut with the Birds on August 20, 2004. To date, his MLB career lasted only 9 games over the last month of the '04 season. He played centerfield and right field while also appearing as a pinch hitter and pinch runner. He had 2 hits, including a double, over thirteen at bats, and also scored three runs while driving in another.

While he has yet to make it back to the Majors, Val was still playing affiliated baseball in 2011. He stayed in the Orioles organization through 2007 and has since spent time in the Astros, Angels, A's, & Rangers farm systems while also mixing in a few stints in the independent Atlantic League.

Keep at it Val, here's to hoping that you can make it back to the Bigs at some point down the road!

I'm a little surprised that he's still playing in affiliated ball - once they hit the Atlantic League, it usually means they're near the end of the road.

Good luck to him. :)

It is surprising, but since he finished 2011 in AAA, maybe he could still make it back to the show one day.
