Paul was my hero in 1966 and the best Center fielder that ever played the game. Jim Palmer knew that and wanted Paul in center and fought Earl Weaver to have Paul in the lineup. What a tribute to him and his defensive abilities and his clutch hitting! I had the privilege of playing of playing against Paul in a game where Freddy Valentine hit one off the wall against me. This was a fantasy camp game way back when in early 1990's @ Memorial Stadium which will be the Orioles home forever in my...

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.

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.

Gone but we will be remembered Paul, you was one of the best.

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...
