Happy # 79 to Brooks Robinson


We say happy # 79 to one of may all time favorite players.    Brooks Robinson broke with the Orioles in 1957 and played his entire career in Baltimore.    I attended Brooks Robinson Day at Memorial Stadium in September 1977.

Along the way, he played in 4 World Series, 2 ALCS, was the 1964 MVP and won an astonishing 16 consecutive gold gloves for his work as a third baseman.   His play in the 1970 World Series earned him the MVP.

Overall, he hit .267 with 2,848 hits, 268 HR & 1,367 RBI.   Brooks had a reputation for being a great clutch hitter.     In his prime, he could hit a HR, a double or make a great play at third.

Robinson was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1983 and continues to be one of the most popular players of all time.
