Orioles get special guest

The Orioles welcomed Brooks Robinson, one of the most beloved players in franchise history, back to Camden Yards on Friday night. Robinson was on hand to honor Melvin Mora, who recently moved into second place on the franchise’s all-time games played at third base.

Mora, who has played in 796 games at third for the Orioles, would have to play 150 games for the next 14 seasons to catch the Hall-of-Famer. Robinson played in 2,870 games at third base for the Orioles, winning 16 Gold Gloves and playing in four World Series.

    Brooks was the reason I became a 3rd baseman, from little league, high school and until I couldn’t get up anymore from diving in the softball leagues. My man !
