Mo Gaba & Orioles HOF

Recommended Posts

This is one of those stories that makes me fall in love with baseball and the Orioles all over again.  This weekend, Mo Gaba will be inducted into the Orioles Hall of Fame.  He wasn't a player, but a young "super fan" who died too soon at the age of 14 from cancer.  He was befriended by Trey Mancini through a shared bond of their struggles against the disease.  But he was also befriended by Oriole great Adam Jones, who kept in contact with the young man and his mother even though he was no longer with the Orioles.  I think that speaks volumes about the character of both Jones and Mancini... and it also says something about the Orioles... that they would choose to honor the memory of this young man who loved the simple joy of baseball as intently as he did.
