Thank you for the front page article about Brooks Robinson and the 1970 World Series (“‘I was in a zone’: Orioles great Brooks Robinson’s awe-inspiring World Series remembered 50 years later,” Oct. 21). It made me laugh out loud with joy and it’s been a while since that happened.

I was a sophomore in college in 1970 with two buddies from Bermuda who thought soccer was “The Game” and that baseball took no skill. I plopped them down in front of the first game, pointed to third base, and said, “Watch that guy.”

They were genuflecting by the ninth inning. Live long and prosper, Brooks!
