Joe Altobelli has passed away at 88

Recommended Posts

I will always be grateful to Joe for leading the Orioles to victory over the Phillies.

I was living in Philadelphia at the time.  If the O's had lost, all my Phillies-loving friends would never have let me live it down.

The players loved playing and winning with Joe Altobelli, perhaps in part because they had endured Earl's antics for years.

It was very much a veteran team, other than Boddicker and Cal (but Cal was probably wise beyond his years).

Lot of guys knew it was their last chance for a ring and the last hurrah for some of the core guys.

So those guys didn't need a lot of pushing or motivation.  A self-motivated low-maintenance bunch was very suites to Joe Altobelli's low key approach.
