Eddie Brinkman Passes Away
When The Washington Senators of my youth played at first called DC, then renamed RFK Stadium in the late 1960's and early 1970's, they had one of the slickest fielding, non hitting, shortstops in the game. Eddie Brinkman was his name and he was Frank Howard's Best Friend. They were, very, very close.
Known as "Wimpy" to Big Frank's "Hondo", Eddie Brinkman passed away today in his home town of Cincinnati, Ohio.
He was 66 Years Old.
Our Heart and Sympathy goes out tonight to Mr. Brinkman, his Family and "My Favorite Player Of All Time!!" Frank Howard.
Some of you may recall Frank Howard talking about his Best Friend during My Interview With "Hondo" in September, 2007.
May Eddie Brinkman Rest In Peace.
