    Get well, Brooks. When we lived in Washington state, my family and I met you at the Kingdom. You were so gracious and kind to my boys. I was excited to finally meet my sports hero! I wasn’t disappointed. You are one of a kind. Please take care.

    Feel better soon Brooks. You are definitely an icon and one cannot say Orioles without thinking of Brooks. I remember, back in the day, when you would be the last player to leave the parking lot because you signed for EVERYONE. You are not only the best third baseman in baseball history but a true gentleman and our hero.. My prayers are with you and your family.

    Get well, Brooks. We fellow septuagenarians need you out and about. I made some money on the 1966 World Series. I was doing grad work in Chicago and the people I was living with were SO sure the Dodgers would win. Well, four games later….. We remember what happened, don’t we?

    Brooks, I was a year ahead of you at LRHS in Little Rock back in the 50’s. I have followed your career from the get go. I married Sonny Kenney and have been friends with Larry Little Rock for years. Larry got an autographed picture from you for my Little League grandson “Brooks”. It is on his wall in Abilene, Texas, and he treasures it. My thoughts and prayers are with you for a quick recovery. God Bless.
