Hanlon moved to the Baltimore Orioles in 1892 where, despite some growing pains, he would experience his greatest success. Baltimore won the National League title from 1894 to 1896 by playing Inside Baseball, using innovative strategies including the hit-and-run. After two more successful, but not championship-calibre, seasons with Baltimore, Hanlon moved to Brooklyn to helm the Superbas in 1899. After winning the National League pennant again in 1899 and 1900, Hanlon's teams faltered. In 1905, his final season with the Superbas, his team failed to win even a third of its games. The following season, Hanlon moved to the helm of the Cincinnati Reds. He retired from managing after the 1907 season, having finished in 6th place in both of his seasons in Cincinnati.
