I don't like crowds and too much noise, very selective on attending any events that involve both. My older children have attended some games there.
Our Maryland, I have a question for James D. Did you ever see Brooksie play Third at Memorial? The O's moved to Baltimore when I was 6, changing their name (thank Heaven) from that permanent straight line, The St. Louis Browns, to our state bird, without visibly improving their level of play. but as things improved in the 60's and Dad could afford good seats or cadge the company box, we'd sit on the Third base side and I'd just stare at the Messers Robinson, one on Third and the other in the Outfield. To be honest it was Brooks that I watched most. I never saw a man who could dive, stretch, reach, spear a ball and then get back on his feet quick enough to throw somebody out at First. Every part of the play was perfection, the catch, the almost magical pop onto his feet (or occasionally his knees) and then that perfect throw.
I'm not the kind of baseball fanatic that my friend Michael here is, but I was completely bewitched by Brooks and his Magic Glove. I feel like I had the opportunity to see true greatness. Of course during the Oriole decade, I was in bloody Ann Arbor (well ... very nice Ann Arbor, really) but I only saw the O's on the TV, and not a big one either. At least I had the Ark, and Schoolkids records to assuage the pain.
