The Pro Football Hall of Fame has the shoes Justin Tucker used for his 66 yard field goal

Did you see it? That was incredible. It’s great that the HOF has Lamar Jackson stuff too. The Ravens are 5-1 and it’s been fun to watch.

A truck in the stands at Forbes Field

This reminds me of the plane that flew into the upper deck at Baltimore’s Memorial Stadium. I have posted about that.

1970 Orioles won the World Series on this date

The 1970 Baltimore Orioles (108-54) were the best team in Orioles history. They won the World Series on October 15, 1970 over the Reds in five games.

In 2010, the Orioles celebrated the 40th anniversary of the 1970 team. They brought players from the team back and introduced them before the game See the pictures of a signed picture I got at the game (only 70 made, $500) and the jersey Bobby Grich wore at the ceremony (which I bought on eBay). I also have a signed print of the World Series trophy.

They were not able to celebrate the 50th anniversary last year because of Covid-19.

Al Oliver hit the last home run at Forbes Field

His birthday is today. He was a great hitter for the Pirates.

First World Series night game – 1971

I saw the last game of the NLCS in 1971 that preceded this World Series. Five Hall of Fame players were in it.

It’s hard to believe that World Series night games only began 50 years ago. There haven’t been day games for many years. This is a mistake by baseball and the broadcasters since young children can’t stay up to see the games.

A low moment in Orioles history

25 years ago yesterday. An obvious bad call.

The first Tommy John surgery was on September 25, 1974

Young people may not know that the surgery is named after major league pitcher Tommy John who had a fine career before and after the operation. I recommend the 30 for 30 short. John and Dr, Frank obe, who did the operation, really didn’t know what would happen when he pitched again.
