We Just Lost One Of The All Time Greats

It's a long story but I'll share part of it. One of the highlights of my life.was going to see the O's take on the Yankees at Yankee Stadium and my guest was Joan Jett. We got to go on the field during batting practice and walk around. It was a great day being in the middle of all that baseball history and one of the big thrills was seeing the great Frank Robinson on the mound talking to a player. We were just feet away from him! For a couple of baseball geeks it was almost too much! I am sad to report that #20 has passed away. Yahoo reports that he passed after a long illness. He was 83 years old.
