Blair was with the Orioles from 1964-76. He then played for the New York Yankees -- winning World Series in 1977 and 1978 -- and the Cincinnati Reds.
In 17 seasons in the majors, he hit .250 with 134 home runs, 620 RBI and 171 stolen bases. Blair appeared in six World Series, two All-Star games and won Gold Gloves in 1967 and 1969-75.
In the 1966 World Series, Blair homered for the only run in Baltimore's Game 3 victory over Los Angeles. The Orioles swept the Dodgers for their first championship.
Blair led the Orioles in the 1970 World Series with a .474 average in Baltimore's five-game victory over Cincinnati. That season, he hit three home runs and had six RBI in a game against the Chicago White Sox.
Inducted into the Orioles Hall of Fame in 1984, Blair coached Fordham in 1983 and at Coppin State from 1998-2002. He had a heart attack in December 2010.
Blair played baseball and basketball and ran track at Manual Arts High School in Los Angeles.
