These were the words of Ryan Hendricks, Elrod's son, at his funeral yesterday.
1 MEMBER OF THE ORIOLES CURRENT 40-MAN ROSTER WAS PRESENT AT THE SERVICE (MELVIN MORA).
There were many others from the baseball community there to pay their respects, but sad
to see no current players attended except Melvin Mora. Elrod was on the coaching staff
until this year. After the stroke, the team moved him to another job, but Mr. Hendricks
never grew to like life outside of an Orioles uniform.
