We remember Ted Marchibroda (1931-2016)

We remember Ted Marchibroda who was born in Franklin, PA, on this day in 1931.

Back in the 1970s, Ted Marchibroda revived the Baltimore Colts with 3 straight AFC East titles.   

He had good roster of young players like QB Bert Jones and running back Lydell Mitchell.

Unfortunately, he and the Colts ran into the Pittsburgh Steelers and Oakland Raiders, or the two teams that went on to win the Super Bowl those 3 seasons.  Therefore, the Colts never got out of the first round.

Later, he was the Ravens coach when the NFL returned to Baltimore.

Coach Marchibroda died in 2016 after a long career in the NFL.   

He was always very respectful of the fans and developed strong relationships with players and fellow coaches in the game.

Jim broke with Houston in 1963 and became a regular in 1965 when the Astrodome opened.   

Over the next 10 years, he hit 223 HR in arguably the ultimate pitcher's park in baseball.   His best season was 1967:  37 HR & 107 RBI.

Later, he played a couple of years in Los Angeles and made it to the 1974 World Series.  He hit 32 HR & 108 RBI for NL Champion LA Dodgers.
