RIP Don Baylor

Don Baylor with the Rockies

This is getting awful. For the second time in one day I have an RIP post.

Don Baylor was a big (for his time) outfielder who played for a lot of teams, starting with Baltimore in the early 1970s. In 1986 he went to the World Series with the Red Sox. In 1987 he was there with the winning Twins. In 1988 he was there for a third straight season with a third straight team; this time the A’s. That was, at the time, unique (I don’t know if it’s still a record). Later he managed the Rockies to their first post season play.

RIP, Don Baylor.
