R.I.P. Rick Camp
Dead of natural causes. Here’s a story I wrote for the local organ remembering Rick Camp’s most iconic moment as a Brave:
“I thought it was the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse,” she said — a sight no less likely than a Rick Camp home run.
No one was much surprised that the Braves lost — a common occurrence in the 1980s.
“If we have to rely on me to hit a home run to win a game, we’re in bad shape,” Camp said afterward.
