Happy 2014, Orioles fans! After watching the O’s offseason get off to an extremely slow start, I’m sure many of your New Year’s resolutions include something along the lines of “Watch the Orioles make a big move.”
In sad and unfortunate news, Orioles great Paul Blair passed away the day after Christmas. While I am too young to have ever seen him play, I have heard stories from my family and from diehard Orioles fans about how great he was and how he made chasing down flyballs in the outfield look easy. I wish that I could have seen Blair stand in shallow center field before taking off.
Blair will be honored with a memorial service open to the public today in Towson.
