1956 Opening Day Color Footage Found

This is some never-before-scene 8mm footage of the Orioles' 1956 home opener. The film sat in a box for nearly 60 years before L.E. Miller found it in an antiques shop and A.J. Video Services in South Baltimore digitized it. The Orioles won this game after getting defeated handily in Boston the week before, and you can see the crowd is pretty excited about it.
