R.I.P. PAUL BLAIR: CENTERFIELDER PAR EXCELLENCE: 1944-2013


February 1, 1944- December 26, 2013.

Sad to hear that former Orioles, Yankees and Reds center fielder Paul Blair passed away yesterday at the age of 69.
Blair was the finest fielding center fielder of his day, winning eight Gold Gloves in nine years, and was a member of four championship teams (1966/1970 Orioles and 1977/1978 Yankees) during his 17-year career spanning 1964 and 1980.
Rest in peace "Motormouth", you'll be missed by many.

  1. Wow, I was unaware of Mr. Blair's passing. A class act all the way, and a very underrated player to boot.
