The perfect emotional specimen.
For 23 sparkling years, possessed a dazzling glove.
Won 16 Gold Gloves.
Impeccable hand-eye coordination.

Debuted in September 1955 during my infancy.
A two time World Series winner.
Clever and delightful, a fan’s champion.
A lifetime Oriole.

The human vacuum cleaner against the Reds in 1970.
Constantly gobbled up hot shots against Cincinnati that year.
A Series wizard and one of the best ever at third base.
A clutch hitter when it truly counted.

A Cooperstown mainstay.
The fandom’s champion.
One heck of a ball player.
Rest in peace, Brooks.
