Mr. Howard, God called you home 33 years ago today. You were, are, and will always represent everything which is right with the national pastime. Thank you for the countless memories and moments, both on and off the field, which you have and continue to provide for generations of fans, young and old. Most importantly, thank you for being the first Yankee of color, and for carrying yourself with dignity, class, and sportsmanship, which helped pave the way for other players to follow. It would have been the greatest honor to have met and worked with you. May God continue to bless and watch over you and those you love then, now, and always.RIP

Elston Howard was all of the kind words that the Yankees placed on his Yankee Stadium memorial plaque. But in 1967 he was a hero to every young kid in the Boston area as he helped to bring the cardiac kids to their first pennant in 21 years and made believers and lifetime fans out of a new generation of Red Sox fans.

Happy Belated Birthday, Mr. Howard. My deepest apologies for the lateness of this post. You were, are, and will always represent everything which is right with the national pastime.

May God continue to bless and watch over you and those you love then, now, and always. RIP

Mr. Howard, God called you home 30 years ago today. You were, are, and will always represent everything which is right with the national pastime. Thank you for being first African-American to ever play for the Yankees, and conducting yourself with the utmost of class, both on and off the field. Your teammate, Mr. Roger Maris, passed away on the same date as you, 5 years later. It would have been the greatest honor to meet and speak with you. May God continue to bless and watch over you and those you love then, now, and always. RIP
