Bidding a fond farewell to Brooks Robinson. He was a joy to watch, except if you were the other team. He had the best hot corner hands of all time… with all due respect to Schmidt, Brett and a rew others. And he was a money hitter, and dangerous tour de force to have to deal with. Won 2 World Championships, along with how many All-Stars and gold gloves. Topping that off was his work as a broadcaster for them O’s. He could say “Jim Palmer” better than anyone else.
And at some early age, I forgot he wore No. 5, my favorite number for no apparent reason.
