Published March 3, 2014
PAYING TRIBUTE: In Baltimore, Eduardo Encina noted several Orioles players "chose to honor" Barlow during Saturday's game against the Blue Jays, wearing armbands inscribed with Barlow's initials. Showalter: "Everybody was thinking about her today." Orioles 1B CHRIS DAVIS said that he would "like to see the club honor Barlow with a uniform patch or with something on their hats or helmets for the upcoming season" (BALTIMORESUN.com, 3/1). Encina wrote of Barlow, "Even though she never wore a uniform and did most of her work behind the scenes, she epitomized everything we know that defines 'The Oriole Way.'" Barlow "left such an amazing legacy by impacting everyone she came in contact with. We will all miss her" (BALTIMORESUN.com, 3/2).
