Strangely, surrounding a golf outing similar to Gil Hodges -- two members of the 1969 World Series.
He was my drafted CF on Strat O Matic baseball team

(Merry Christmas Everyone . . .)
May he Rest In Peace and our prayers are with his loved ones.

(It's not the penalty, it's the lack of coverage on 1 Jan. Think about it.)
RIP Paul Blair. He played the shallowest CF in baseball. Great speed and range.
A genuine Gold Glove guy.
His nickname was Motor Mouth.

Blair also spent his waning baseball days as mostly an observer in the Bronx Zoo (aka the New York Yankees clubhouse during the Steinbrenner-Martin-Jackson era).
Never got the credit he was probably due.
RIP Paul. Tough year for Oriole alumni.

RIP Paul Blair.

I still remember watching him play. Rest in peace Paul, you were one of the greatest!
