Steve Johnson OriolesSteve Johnson has Baltimore is in blood.  The 24-year-old son of former pitcher Dave Johnson makes his first career start for the Baltimore Orioles tonight against the Seattle Mariners.

23 years ago today, August 8, 1989, Steve’s dad Dave Johnson recorded his first win for the Baltimore Orioles.  The final out of DJ’s first win was recorded by Steve’s current (injured) teammate Jim Thome.

Baseball is an amazing game.

Go get ’em Steve.
