When Mr. Robinson retired after 21 seasons as a player in 1976, his 586 home runs ranked fourth behind Aaron, Babe Ruth and Mays. (He is now 10th on the all-time list.) He finished his career with a .294 batting average and 1,812 RBI (21st all time). He was named to the all-star team in 12 seasons and was a first-ballot Hall of Famer in 1982.

The Summer of '89 I'll forever cherish.  That was the "Why nOt" year, when Frank managed the O's to within a weekend series of the playoffs with a rag-tag bunch of no-name players (the ones not named Ripken).  Remember "Babe Loops"?

Luis Aparicio, Boog Powell, Brooks Robinson and Frank Robinson. THESE WERE MY HEROES WHEN I FIRST MOVED TO BMORE IN 1966. FRANK WAS THE PRIDE OF BLACK BALTIMORE AND A FIERCE PLAYER WHO TOOK NO s**t FROM ANYONE. MAY HE NOW REST IN PEACE.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>

 

Please consider supporting our efforts to foster free and open discussion of current issues as they relate to the topics you are interested in.
