On November 3rd in a ceremony at Michael’s Eighth Ave in Glen Burnie, Orioles Vice-President of Baseball Operations, Brady Anderson was one of seven people inducted into the Maryland State Athletic Hall of Fame.
Anderson was introduced at the ceremony by long-time friend Cal Ripken, Jr. Also present for the induction were many of the Orioles front office including Lou Angelos, Dan Duquette and Buck Showalter. The highlight of the evening for Anderson was the fact that his 13 year old daughter, Brianna, was there to witness the ceremony as was his father Jerry.
Anderson told MASN’s Roch Kubatko “To be able to bring my dad and my daughter and have them both here, that meant everything to me.” He further elaborated to Roch as to why Brianna’s being there was special to him: “She didn’t get to see me play. She’s really not that interested in watching old videos. She knows that I played, she’s aware, but I never really got to share anything like that with her. She was only a few months old during my Orioles Hall of Fame induction. So that’s why it meant so much to me. For more from Roch Kubatko on the evening click here
