1) The Orioles are doing a season-long event involving six of the finest players in team history, and many were stars when the Orioles were considered Washington’s team. (The players are Frank Robinson, Brooks Robinson, Earl Weaver, Jim Palmer, Eddie Murray and Cal. More info here.)

2) The first unveiling of a larger-than-life bronze sculpture came Saturday evening, and it involved Frank Robinson, the man who skippered the first modern version of the Nationals, and a man who many Nats fans feel deserves some sort of permanent recognition in D.C.

3) All (!) fans at Saturday’s game received exact miniature replicas of the Frank sculpture, which is an amazing giveaway. And

4) Maybe this makes me a disgusting Philistine who can’t appreciate good art, but this sure looks more visually appealing than some of the sculptures at our own local ballyard.
