Mr. Howard, God called you home 35 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, which you have and continue to provide for generations of fans, young and old. Thank you for being the first player of color for the Yankees and for representing the franchise and the game of baseball with class, dignity, and respect. You are and will forever remain a true pioneer and a true example by which all should aspire to emulate. 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

Mr. Howard, God called you home 34 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, which you have and continue to provide for generations of fans, young and old. You are and will a true original, class act, and pure professional, who became the first black Yankee and did so while demonstrating the most admirable qualities, and who also helped pave the way for all players of color to follow. You are and will remain an example by which all should aspire to emulate. 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

Remembering Elston 34 years later... Solid Yankee backstop during early '60's glory days. You share this day with Yankee teammate Roger Maris (1985). RIP, Mr. Howard.

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. Thank you for embodying the true essence of what a Yankee and professional athlete should be, both on and off the field. Thank you for being the first black Yankee, and for being a pioneer who would pave the way for all fellow athletes to follow. It would have been the greatest honor to meet and work with you. May God continue to bless and watch over you and those you love then, now, and always. RIP
