Oriole We'll Miss

J.J. Hardy

Not only will we miss the play of shortstop J.J. Hardy, whose option for 2018 was not picked up, but we'll also miss the crowd chanting, "J … J … Hardy!" when he was introduced.

In seven seasons in Baltimore, Hardy won three Gold Gloves and a Silver Slugger award and made an All-Star Game start.

In what was presumably his final home game this past September, the affable Hardy received a standing ovation before his first at-bat and later hit a homer.
