April Showers in Baltimore
Date of Event: April 29, 1988
Sometimes when a hitter has a bad start, he will say, “I went 0 for April.” In 1988, the Orioles very nearly accomplished this most unlikely feat. They lost 21 straight games, the longest losing streak to start a season and the longest losing streak ever in American League history. On April 29, they finally broke the streak with a victory over the White Sox.
