The Florida Complex League Orioles are a Rookie-level affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles, competing in the Florida Complex League of Minor League Baseball. Before 2021, the team was known as the Gulf Coast League Orioles. The team plays its home games in Sarasota, Florida, at Orioles Buck O'Neil Complex at Twin Lakes Park.

History[edit]

The team first competed from 1991 to 2003 in the Gulf Coast League. After not fielding a team for three seasons, the team returned in 2007 and has competed continuously since then. The team has qualified for the postseason twice, in 1991 and 2011, and has yet to capture a league title.

Before the 2021 season, the league was renamed as the Florida Complex League. For the 2021 season, the Orioles are fielding two squads in the league, differentiated as "Black" and "Orange" in reference to the team's colors.
