Paul Blair was one of my all time favorite players. Just remembering him glide in the outfield with such ease, being a member of the great Oriole teams and most memorably his playing days with the Yankees. I wish I had the opportunity to meet with him.

On page 5, Ms. Motten wrote in folks; Curt's wife. Thank You Ma'am!
We wish more guys of the teams Paul played on would do so too, for bringing this entire display-to a remarkable finale.
This Baltimore Era was a long time ago, and just look at the greatness we all feel, and feel for each other reading your stuff, like being a part of that era some more.
I wrote in on page 5 too.
Please continue-and encourage more.

Paul Blair was the best centerfielder that I have ever seen. It was a pleasure to watch him play centerfield in Baltimore. In addition to his great glove, speed and hitting ability, he was a man with a strong work ethic and was always striving for excellence. I will never forget him and was so lucky to have my picture taken with him at a Camera Day at Memorial Stadium in the early 1970s. He was a fantastic centerfielder, a wonderful man and a beloved Oriole.

Paul, thank you for all the wonderful memories.

To Mrs.Blair and the Blair family- May God bless you and comfort you.

My deepest sympathy to the family. I remember Paul Blair as a class act. Growing up a little kid that love the Orioles in the 60's I remember so much about him. My fondest memory was the cool trot he had after a third out. He used to tuck his glove under his arm and jog in from the outfield. I copied that run for a number of years. God Bless you Mr. Blair, see ya on the other side.

Our hearts are heavy at the loss of a dear friend. Paul inspired all he knew to live life to the fullest. His spirit and laugh will never be forgotten. May we all find strength in holding on to our memories as we must say "goodbye" to a very special man. Our condolences to Gloria, his children, grandchildren and friends. Paul you will be missed. Love, Diane, Mike and Danny Michalek

I mentioned in a previous post that Paul Blair hit a long fly ball to left field at Memorial Stadium against Texas in 1971. I mentioned I ended up getting this ball. I forgot to mention it was his first home run of the year! It was off of Bill Gogeleski. The O's only run of that game was Paul's home run and I still have it and have cherished that ball for 43 years.
RIP Paul and thanks for a memory of a life time and especially one bestowed on a 12 year old Oriole fan at the time who still bleeds Orange and black.Thanks to the internet I keep on top of current Oriole news like that of Pauls passing here in India.
