Paul Blair, the former Gold Glove center fielder of the Baltimore Orioles, New York Yankees, and Cincinnati Reds, has passed away.
Paul Blair was 69.
In my 6 decades of watching baseball, there was no better center fielder in the American League while Paul Blair was roving the outfield for the Orioles.
Mickey Stanley, the Tigers CF in 1968, won a couple of Gold Gloves, the others always seemed to land in Blair's glove, just like thousands of lost hits did.
My thoughts and prayers for the Blair family.
May God Bless Paul Blair.
