Had no idea he meant that much to the organization.

Good for Harold. He's a quiet, unassuming man who never asks for any attention, and it's nice to see those types get noticed every once in a while.

Wow. I didn't realize he spent part of 7 seasons with the Orioles. I just looked up his stats and he had some pretty good seasons with the O's.

Also, as mentioned in the Merkin article, Baines grew up in Maryland.

I guess I'm in the minority in that I thought it was strange the Orioles are putting him into their HOF since he was good not great for them, but I love Harold and congrats to him for this honor.
