What do you remember about Curt Motton?
We’re offering up a bonus entry today.
But we are doing it with the 1970 World Championship flag behind the bar at half-mast.
Curt Motton, a member of that Orioles team (and six others) passed away at age 69 after dealing with stomach cancer.
I didn’t know Motton, and don’t remember seeing him play. I was about five when he played his last big-league game.
But I knew about him, and his role as a key pinch-hitter on those amazing Orioles’ teams.
So I figured I’d give you the opportunity to talk about Motton, especially the old-timers at the bar who can remember 1966 through 1971 like it was yesterday.
Rich and Jack, this one is definitely for you guys. Have at it.
The rest of you, raise a glass to old No. 21.
