It's a wonder that Brooks even made it onto this '57 O's ball considering all the time he missed in his rookie year for a torn cartilage injury and then a beaning that required 10 stitches. The Human Vacuum Cleaner's long string of All-Star Games and Gold Glove Awards wouldn't come until his breakout season in 1960. Highlights of the remaining three balls are Ted Williams and Al Kaline.
