>Earlier this year, Robin Roberts, former pitcher for the Phillies and Orioles, passed away.  Roberts had a great career pitching for 14 seasons with Philadelphia (1948-’61) and parts of other seasons with the Baltimore, Houston and Wrigleyville ballclubs.

The picture below captures a tender moment in which Jamie Moyer remembers his friend and teammate.  When asked to reflect on his fondest memory of Roberts, Moyer gazed off into the distance and recounted the story of a swirly he received from Roberts shortly after his first career win.
