B. Robinson makes All-Stars' day

June 06, 2008|By Pat O'Malley | Pat O'Malley,Sun reporter

Getting to shake the hand of Brooks Robinson yesterday at Camden Yards was as much of a thrill for many of the players as being chosen for the prep All-Star game that carries the name of the Orioles legend.

In a news conference at Camden Yards, the North and South teams were introduced for the Brooks Robinson High School All-Star Game of Maryland that will be played after the Orioles-Pittsburgh Pirates game June 15.

Robinson was on hand yesterday, as he has been every year since 1982, to congratulate the seniors selected for the 15-player teams after a series of tryouts.

"It was unbelievable meeting a Hall of Famer like that," said Severna Park's second-team Sun All-Metro shortstop Cory Jensen, a member of the South team. "It puts a smile on your face."pat.omalley @baltsun.com
