As 2013 came to an end last night at the stroke of midnight, 2014 came upon us, but before we look forward, we wanted to take one last look at the 2013 season for the Baltimore Orioles and we asked you, our followers and readers to give us your most memorable Orioles moments of 2013.

The 2013 season did not produce a playoff run like 2012 did, but Baltimore still completed their second straight winning season and gave us meaningful baseball games in September.

We were very pleased at the huge response we got from everyone and there were so many that we could not possibly list them all, but we are pleased to present everyone with some of the fans' most memorable Orioles 2013 moments.

"Walk off three run homer by Chris Dickerson against the Tigers." @Bohleive83

"Sweeping the Yankees at Oriole Park at Camden Yards." @JeffStower

"Fan giving the doublebird to Carl Crawford from the left field bleachers as Crawford went back on a home run." @ravensdale

"Davis hitting his 50th in Toronto. Moon shot and milestone shot. Also, Machado's throw from the Yankee dugout ." @ericarditti

"(Matt) Wieters walk off grand slam in April vs Rays." @tonygcomedy

"Davis' go ahead homer in the home opener to give him 4 straight games with a home run to start the season ." @t_murph86

"gotta be Machado making the throw across his body next to the hot dog guy in the 4th row of Yankee Stadium ." @SeeMose23

"Buck charging out of the dugout Weaver style, ready to take off Girardi's head ." @floridaoriole

"Crush breaking the Orioles single season home run record was the most memorable." @moranthegreat

As you can see there were plenty of memorable moments in 2013 for the Birds and almost every one of the above comments had multiple people say them. In addition to the ones above, there were some more personal ones, from a fan getting interviewed and being put on MLB.com with his sign, to meeting Gary Thorne, having Nate McLouth throw a fan a foul ball and a mom seeing her son in the Orioles dugout with his two buddies (Henry Urrutia and Jonathan Schoop).

2013 may not have produced the playoff run or Championship so many fans wanted, but it produced memories of a lifetime for some and plenty of moments you will look back on in the years to come.

Happy New Year to every one of our followers/readers, without you guys and gals, none of this would be possible!
