Freddy Ray Beene (b. November 24, 1942) is a former professional baseball player. Beene was a right-handed pitcher who played in the Major Leagues between 1968 to 1975.
Beene played college baseball at Sam Houston State University. In performance in the small college World Series convinced Orioles scout Dee Phillips to sign him for $6,000 in 1964. Beene played with Baltimore’s minor league system until 1968 and made his major league debut in September 18 of that year. He played in eight games over three seasons for the Orioles. In 1972, he was traded to the New York Yankees for a player to be named later, which turned out to be Dale Spier. Beene pitched very well for the Yankees, having earned run averages under 2.50. In 1974 Beene was traded along with Tom Buskey, Steve Kline and Fritz Peterson to the Cleveland Indians for Chris Chambliss, Dick Tidrow and Cecil Upshaw.
After his playing career, Beene spent 20 seasons (1981–2000) as a scout for the Milwaukee Brewers.

Terrence Michael Crowley (b. February 16, 1947 in Staten Island, New York) is a former Major League Baseball player who serves as an organizational hitting instructor for the Baltimore Orioles.
Crowley played for the Orioles from 1969 to 1973 and in 1976–82. He was a backup player who could play the outfield and first base. When the designated hitter rule was implemented, he was the first Oriole to fulfill this role. However, he was best known during his playing career for being a pinch hitter. As of the end of 2008, Crowley’s 108 career pinch-hits is still the 13th-most all-time, tied with Denny Walling.
Crowley has served as the hitting coach for the Baltimore Orioles from 1985 through 1988, the Minnesota Twins from 1991 through 1998, and the Baltimore Orioles from 1999 through 2010. Crowley served as a roving hitting instructor in the Orioles organization in 2011. He was an interim bullpen coach in 2011, following Mark Connor’s resignation and the subsequent promotion of bullpen coach Rick Adair. In 2014, Crowley worked with Oriole Chris Davis on his hitting.
