Story 422
Brooks Robinson - In 1982, I was almost 11 years old and living in Waldorf, MD. My family and I were big Baltimore Orioles fans, and always watched Brooks Robinson (former O's 3B) commentating. That year a Crown gas station had a grand opening, and Mr. Robinson was appearing (he did commercials for them). My mom took me and my 2 brothers to meet him. She asked to have our picture taken with him. He said "Sure, and if it doesn't come out, come back and take another!" Also, the next year, he was doing another promotion, and my brothers and I went with my dad. Well, Brooks and my dad started reminiscing about baseball (my dad had a friend who was a sports photographer, so he got to meet a lot of sports figures in the 1960's). Much to my surprise, they started talking about when they first met back then at an O's game! I also remember that second encounter, because Brooks shook my hand, and said, "Who's this pretty young lady?" He is a true Southern gentleman!
