– Hustled to 1B on a nubber down the 1B line and was safe on Happ’s throwing error.

– Hustled to 1B on a routine grounder to 3B and was safe on a throwing error.

– With Hardy on 2B in a 0-0 game, lined a single to RF, headed to 2B expecting a throw to home plate, then got caught in a rundown long enough to let Hardy score after he initially had stopped at 3B.

– Slammed into the wall in RCF trying to make a catch in a game where the O’s had a sizable lead.

The guy plays hard all the time, and I love him for that, no matter what his flaws may be.


This shows more leadership than anything he could ever say to his teammates. Also, normally I would be critical of crashing into the wall with a big lead, but he would have been able to hold up if he didn’t trip on the travesty that is Toronto’s turf.

Michael Williams
Michael Williams has been an Orioles fan since the sixties when his family moved from Reading Pa to York Pa. Also, the Phillies and 1964. His Grandfather got the Chef Boyardee box seats and Mike was hooked. Brooks Robinson calls him not a fan, but a friend. He has been a member of the Orioles Hangout since early in the New Millennium and Managing Editor since 2011. Or so it seems. He lives in Harrisburg PA, down by the river. Not currently in a van.
