Happy '77th' Birthday Brooks Robinson today! The greatest 3rd baseman ever!


I don't have an 'ignore' list. I don't need no stinkin' list to remind me who I've ignored! I ignore the old-fashioned way.

....and an even better human being.  I'm not one to demand that professional ball players be role models but he was one that I looked up to as a child and even at such a young age, I could discern the depth of his integrity and overall kindess.  I would imagine there's probably not a single person out there, who's known Brooks and has ever said a bad word about him.  Truly a fine person.

When I was a kid I had a poster of him on my wall. My favorite player.

Cal Ripken was a decent player and is a nice enough guy, but to me, Brooks Robinson will forever be 'Mr. Oriole'.

 

Happy Birthday, Brooks!
