As many of you know on this board, I have been friends of Brooks Robinson for more than forty years.
Two weeks ago I received a call from Brooks.
He asked me if I would introduce him at the statue unveiling ceremony next Saturday.
I actually asked him if he was joking.
I will be one of two people selected by Brooks to comment at the unveiling at the ceremony before the game. Needless to say, this is one of the greatest honors in my life.
I wanted to share this humbling and thrilling news with my fellow Oriole fans and all the fans of the greatest Oriole of them all.
I only hope my words can do justice to the man and what he means to the city of Baltimore and to the game of baseball.
Hope you can all come out and honor this great man with me.
