One of the best shortstops I ever saw. When teamed with Aurelio Rodriguez they formed one of the best left sides of the infield in baseball history.

His brother, Chuck, of course, played for the White Sox. Eddie Brinkman was only 66, which is too young to go.

I remember seeing this on the scoreboard Tuesday at The Cell. What a shame.

I remember Brink working OT to make the 1983 White Sox a much better defensive team, esp in the second half. For anyone who watched the 1982 team, the difference was remarkable, as that team had many Iron Glove recipients.

I also remember him working over the winter in 1987 trying to convert Kenny Williams into a 3B, along with a skinny kid the White Sox acquired from SD in 1984 named Ozzie Guillen.

Brink was a great baseball man, and is sorely missed.
