PressBox’s third annual Best Of is here, featuring more than 60 honorees, including best win, best save, best dynasty, best atmosphere and much more.

Best New Addition

Try explaining to a friend from, say, Nebraska, that the list of most purely beloved sports figures in Baltimore history includes Brooks Robinson, Lenny Moore and … a beer vendor? That’s the air that Clarence “Fancy Clancy” Haskett breathes locally.

In April, the icon’s favorite local bar (Sliders) unveiled the perfect tribute to Haskett’s 45-year career — his own beer! Not only is Escutcheon Brewing’s Fancy Clancy Pilsner tasty, the personalized beer taps were like a “gun show” come to life.
