The Brooks Robinson statue unveiling was really nice. Charlie Steinberg gave a wonderful a speech to start things off, next Roy Firestone aka Roy “the bat boy” gave a nice speech as well. The Angelos boy was even in good form. And Brooks gave a great speech that was both touching and funny. I know it wasn’t planned this way but I think it was fitting that the best was saved for last.
Also in attendance was Frank Robinson, Earl Weaver, Cal Ripken, Jim Palmer, Eddie Murray, Boog Powell, Milt Pappas, Ron Hansen, Paul Blair, Al Bumbry, Brady Anderson, Jim Thome, Adam Jones, Mike Bordick, Buck Showater and BJ Surhoff among others.
