I had the opportunity to write about my first favorite baseball player, Brady Anderson, for Second Place is not an Option.
“We’re a Baltimore family. I grew up about 40 minutes from Memorial Stadium. And, since the Colts disappeared and my father was in his teens/20s in the late 60s, we were an Orioles family.
In 1988, my parents bought the Sunday season ticket package (upper deck, third base side) to the Orioles. I was 6. I may be embellishing, but I don’t think we saw a victory all year (the Orioles went 4-11 on Sundays at home in ’88). We also didn’t go to every game. Obviously, the odds we missed all victories is small (especially as two victories were in May), but the overwhelming sentiment was that the O’s were crap.”
