Happy 79th birthday, Brooks Robinson.

Also, happy birthday to Brooks' teammate on the 1976 Orioles, Reggie Jackson.

The 1976 Orioles went 88-74, and that was considered a "bad" year ...... how times have changed.

Every lesson around learning the game of baseball from my Grandfather finished with the line, "Just watch him -- because Brooks Robinson does everything the right way." And it was true, in the field, at the plate or off the field...

Happy B-Day Brooks!

You know, Brooks could probably fill in nicely at third....

The best there ever was. Thats the best PERSON there ever was in baseball...for me anyway. Heres my biggest thrill in my career.Brooks asked ME to introduce HIM at his statue unveiling.I could barely catch my breath at the podium.

Truly an emotional day, still in the pennant race late in September and beating the Red Sox. Manny just getting his first full month in Baltimore (and homering that night just feet from us). And Brooks starting his speech with "How about those O's!" Maybe Earl Weaver seemed like a feisty uncle figure, but Brooks always seemed like a father figure the way he handled himself and is still universally loved. Happy birthday, Brooks - they broke the mold with you!

A shot from that day. Terrific introduction, Roy.

Brooks is still alive and kicking, at 81.

Happy birthday, Mr. Robinson.
