Disco Dan Ford
I was just looking something up and came across Dan Ford's career statistics, and something weird popped out at me: how in the world did he steal 9 bases for the 1983 Orioles? I remember as being kind of an old creaky-kneed guy, and Earl's teams weren't known for stolen bases. This just seemed like an odd stat.

I too remember him as being fairly slow, but the main hing I remember about him was his extreme closed stance. I used that stance in little league for awhile and hit one of my longest home runs using that stance. Not sure why I stop using it but I do remember that stance. He was a cool looking dude though.

I think 1976 was the year I spent in my basement watching O's games. Ford and Lyman Bostock and Rod Carew led the Twins. I just googled and found Mike Cubbage, Larry Hisle and some other good players on that team. Bert Blyleven. A big gap hitter as I recall.

I think we traded Doug Decines for him to make room for Cal on third. In retrospect that was a pretty awful trade.
