U.S. Sen. Barbara Mikulski had this memory to share: "I remember those days at Memorial Stadium. I loved it. I grew up in Highlandtown, and we took the Number 22 bus there. Baseball is part of our identity. In 1977, when Brooks said goodbye and we said, "Thanks, Brooks, for staying," there wasn't a dry eye in the house or an empty seat at the stadium."
