About this product
- DescriptionBaltimore Orioles: Where Have You Gone? is a unique look at what a number of former Orioles personalities have gone on to do in life since their playing careers ended. Author Jeff Seidel spoke with a wide-ranging number of former Baltimore players, from stars like Cal Ripken Jr. and Brooks Robinson, to those who had only their 15 minutes of fame, like Dave Criscione and John Stefero. A common thread seems to be how many of the former Orioles stayed in baseball in some form, like Ripken, who started his own mir league team in Aberdeen, Maryland, something that's clearly close to his heart; or former catcher Andy Etchebarren, a longtime mir league manager and coach. Baltimore Orioles: Where Have You Gone? features men like Mike Flanagan, the Cy Young Award--winning lefty who anchored the Orioles pitching staff in the late '70s and early '80s, finally becoming the team's pitching coach and co--general manager. The book also includes a chapter on Tommy Davis, the team's first designated hitter, who tells how he came up with a key base hit after nearly missing his at-bat because he was talking on the clubhouse telephone; Doug DeCinces, faced with the cruel task of taking over for Brooks Robinson at third base, talking about the huge pressure he faced and how he truly appreciated playing for the Orioles; and finally the legendary Robinson himself, still a fan favorite over 35 years after retiring, telling how he told the Chicago White Sox thanks, but thanks, when they asked him about managing. It's all here; perfect for any Orioles fan!
