I can’t think of a 21 year old Baltimore pro sports star that’s had more impact on his sport and Baltimore than Manny Machado.
It would be a shame if the Orioles don’t make the playoffs, because they will then waste one of the greatest offensive seasons in team history, and certainly one of those epic seasons.
Let me start by saying that Adam Jones gets too much criticism. He’s an outstanding player, and has become a great leader. That said, I am going to criticize him a little.
Hall of Famer and former Oriole great Brooks Robinson joined the Norris and Davis show to discuss Oriole baseball.
Like with most great players, Ray will have some critics, but we all witnessed greatness in the making and now, that it appears to be over, we can say he was ours and ours only.
Cal gave an explanation of why he said Adrian Beltre was a better third baseman then Brooks Robinson.
The fans erupted with a standing ovation and upon his arrival to the field, they cheered again when a smaller version of the bronze sculpture was unveiled in front of the pitcher’s mound.
Brooks Robinson–immortalized in bronze. The Hall of Fame third-baseman looks back on his 23 seasons with the Orioles at a special statue unveiling at Camden Yards. WJZ has the speech, and reaction from other O’s legends.
There was plenty of excitement before the Orioles-Red Sox game on Saturday. There was a tribute to one of the best Orioles in history.
Tens of thousands of fans packed into Camden Yards on Friday night to see the Orioles take on the Red Sox.
The Orioles had a well attended ceremony for the unveiling of the statue of Hall of Fame first baseman Eddie Murray. Before the celebration even began the crowd erupted with the chants of “Eddie Eddie Eddie.”
It’s not a reach to say the kid from the North Baltimore Aquatic Club is the greatest Olympian of all time. And that got me thinking about how lucky Baltimore sports fans have been to have watched so many that have been considered among the Greatest Of All Time.
