The 2020 Baltimore Orioles season was the 120th season in Baltimore Orioles franchise history, the 67th in Baltimore, and the 29th at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. The season was the Orioles' second under manager Brandon Hyde. They finished the pandemic-shortened season 25–35, their best 60-game stretch since 2017. The Orioles had their highest winning percentage since 2017 when they went 75–87. Despite these improvements, they missed the playoffs for the fourth consecutive season as they were eliminated from playoff contention on September 22.

COVID-19 Outbreak

On July 27, 2020, both away games against the Miami Marlins were postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, because there was a COVID outbreak in the Miami Marlins organization, and later the Orioles′ home games were also postponed. As a result, the Orioles played the New York Yankees on July 29–30.
