Mark Belanger A Great Defensive Shortstop

September 27, 2018

Certainly Mark Belanger is one of the greatest defensive shortstops in major league baseball history.

Belanger and the fabulous Brooks Robinson at third base gave the Baltimore Orioles an incredible left side defense.

In the team’s great run from (1969-1971), Add Dave Johnson and Boog Powell to form a magnificent infield.

Mr. Belanger was tall and thin and known as “The Blade.”

He was not known for his hitting but on the one title those Orioles won in 1970, Mark weighed in with some big post-season hits.
