life pilgrims at the end gate,
whooo will pass this night?

One of the greats. My first HB bat had his signature.

George:

Great writeup. I wonder what happens when you google Shirley Povich of the Washing Post. What a classic sports writer.

I spent time in DC at RFK (What a Dung heap)watching the Senators, but that was a different team. As a Dodger fan I enamored with them because at that time they had another slugger of Dodger fame... Frank Howard. He was similar in stature to the Killer not quite as prolithic.
