Players Who Played for Oakland and Baltimore

5 Baseball Players who Played for Athletics and Orioles

There is a good chance that if you’ve found this page then you’re playing the Immaculate Grid.

That also means that today’s grid has asked for players that have played for both the Oakland A’s and the Baltimore Orioles.

And, it also means that you’re probably stuck on this particular box and you’re looking for a little help. Sound about right so far?

Well, good news, you’re in the right place.

I’ve done some research and have found players who played on both the A’s and the Orioles.

Reggie Jackson

“Mr. October” Reggie Jackson is easily considered one of the best baseball players of all time.

The 14-time All-Star played for 4 different teams in his 20-year career – the Athletics, Angels (California Angels at the time), Yankees and Orioles.

Jackson is one of the all-time career home run leaders in MLB history with 563 and he also holds the all-time record with 2597 strikeouts. He was an MVP with the Athletics in 1973 and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1993.

Miguel Tejada

Miguel Tejada racked up 6 All-Star awards and an MVP award in 2002 while playing with the Oakland Athletics. He led the league in RBIs with 150 in 2004 while with the Orioles. He also led the league in doubles with 50 in 2005 with the Orioles.

Tejada played for six different teams over his 16-year career – Oakland, Baltimore, Houston, Kansas City, San Diego and the San Francisco Giants.

Mickey Tettleton

Personally, I remember Mickey Tettleton as the all-star catcher who played on the Orioles with Cal Ripken Jr in the late 80s.

But, Tettleton played for 4 different teams over his 14-year career. In addition to Baltimore, he also played for the Tigers (was an all-star there as well), Rangers and Athletics.

Tettleton led the league in walks with 122 in 1992 (had over 900 in his career) with the Tigers.

Geronimo Berroa

Geronimo Berroa, who played from 1989 to 2000, is best remembered for his time as an outfielder and designated hitter with the Oakland Athletics.

In a career spanning over a decade, Berroa accumulated over 600 hits, 101 home runs, and maintained a .276 career batting average. While never named an All-Star, Berroa had a standout season in 1996 with the Athletics, hitting .290 with 36 home runs and 106 RBIs.

Known for his power hitting and ability to get on base, Berroa had a successful, albeit under-the-radar, career in the Major Leagues.

Rich Hill

Rich Hill is an Immaculate Grid beast. The left-handed pitcher has played for 13 different clubs over his incredible 19-year career – one that is still ongoing as I’m writing this (he’s currently pitching with the Padres).

Hill’s MLB journey began when he was drafted by the Chicago Cubs in 2002. After making his major league debut in 2005, he had initial success with the Cubs, particularly in 2007 when he had a standout season. However, injuries, inconsistency, and command issues led to him bouncing around the minors and various MLB teams for several years.

After refining his pitching approach and mechanics, he experienced a career resurgence starting in 2015. At an age when many players see diminished returns, Hill became one of the most effective starters in baseball. This late-career renaissance led to stints with the Red Sox, Athletics, Dodgers, Twins, and Rays.
