Bobby Orr was my idol as a kid.When I played ice hockey,I wore #4 had every book I could find on him,and never missed a Bruins game.This is just a
little history on him.....
ROBERT GORDON - (Bobby) ORR
Defense, 6-0 ft., 199 lbs. Parry Sound, Ont., March 20, 1948
In early 1948 (March 20th) the Orr family had a new son named after his grandfather his name was Robert Gordon Orr.
At the tender age of 4 years old, a friend of the family bought Bobby his first pair of skates. Little did they know the history that would be made
after that purchase.
He embarked on playing in the Parry Sound Minor Squirt Hockey League. By 9 years old he had won the MVP in the Pee-Wee Division. Not a bad start.
