This isn't a good year if your name is Earl W. and you played for the Orioles. We've lost Mr. Williams this week, too, and to leukemia at that.
I'm from New Jersey and don't live too far away from Newark, where Williams was born, Montclair, where he went to high school, and Somerset, where he passed away. This one's a little personal for me.
We'll miss you, Earl.
