      Hope springs etearnl. I remember the play Brooks Robinson made on Lee May in the 1970 World Series on TV. I seen Willie McCovey homer after Willie Mays got a single at 3 Rivers in Pittsburgh that year. I remember the year Sam Horn hit 3 homers on opening day. The Orioles lineup is going to be very different this year, Brian Roberts the only player to return on the infield. The off season acquisitions certainly can’t hurt. Go Orioles!! (since about 1967)
