GOLDEN LOVE AWARD
Some say there are no more modern day
heroes, but we we think there are literally
thousands in our country, today.
Brooks Robinson is an excellent case in
point. His 16 Golden Glove Awards and his 15
All-star performances will someday be duly noted
in the Baseball Hall of Fame.
But, if there was a Golden Love Award,
Brooks probably should be its first modern day
For he gave millions of fans a love of
baseball when televised promotion of football
was on the ascendency and when baseball
seemed to be heading for the showers.
Brooks gave us a high-quality, dignified
Christian witness on and off the field.
In our record book, we believe Brooks is
well deserving of the ...Golden Love Award.
(This article was written in 1977, when Brooks
announced his retirement.)
