    I remember the Say Hey Kid as one of my childhood baseball hero’s, the basket catch and all. It is rather fascinating that as far as we’ve come in society there were still people that played in segregated leagues walking amongst us. Our past is closer than our future.

    Voting Rights Act passed in 1965, so yeah…

    I remember Willie for hitting deep and consistently getting an extra base with his speed. Hell of a base thief too.

    Hat tip to one of the greatest to ever play the game. RIP Willie.

    What so many stories retelling “the catch” in the Series against the Tribe omit, is that he got that ball back in so damned fast to stop the runner from scoring. Incredible player; wish I could have seen him play.

    I'm usually way up top. This was a nice change. Great seatmates. Upstairs can be great or not so great..

    Those Giants teams in the 60s were incredible. Mays, McCovey, Cepeda, Marichal, Jim Ray Hart, the Alou brothers. They just kept running into the Koufax era Dodgers and the Cardinals.

    RIP Willie…a top tier great.

    Unfortunately, this pic sums up the quality of play currently.

    Dodgers trailing 9-4 in the ninth and then mount a seven-run, ninth-inning comeback with HRs from Teoscar and a Salami from Jay Hey !!

    so many weapons.

    Dave Niehaus was a magnanimous soul, but I bet he'd have preferred if Teo brought the rye bread and the mustard.

    Which one?! We had four errors tonight but I believe I was gone by what you're referring to. Was really only there for the bobblehead that I missed out on cause this dumb ass got hopelessly lost in Union Station after my train in docked on a different platform than usual.

    I've got another ticket for the next bobblehead night - pretty sure I'll just head down, grab it, and walk back out lol.

    The Naylor boys are from the next town south from me! And Zack Pop (who?!) is from my town as well for those interested in any Canadian connections.

    The Naylor boys are a cool story. Imagine having 3 sons who all make it to pro ball.

    You’re not kidding. Josh Naylor spends his off days for the past 2 years volunteering with a group of local women at the Children’s Hospital Ronald McDonald House making meals for the kids and their families staying there. Even got those ladies on the field this year for a first pitch.

    Class dude.

    Rickwood Field game on Fox now. A celebration of the negro leagues, and Willie Mays, of course. Lotta great stuff!

    And right on Reggie! Telling it like it was!
    The past is a foreign country; they do things differently there.

    Nice! In that vein, and I'm not going to pretend I have a ton of knowledge in this respect, Bo has been very generous with his time volunteering with various causes, and the really cool thing is at first it wasn't even publicized. Like, he was just doing it. No cameras.

    Came in blind. I had no idea this was going on. The opening ceremony and continued interviews are extremely emotional and telling. Sort of getting tired of tearing up tbh.

    Hated and kinda shocked to see Reggie looking old like that, but loved him bringing the anger out. I had no idea he was anything but a superstar when I was a kid. People really have no idea how close to the present that stuff lives.

    Yea, it really was. You can love him or hate him, but Reggie was a great player - THE MAN for a time there. Although I'm quite sure MLB would have preferred him keep things reined in, I'm glad they didn't try to bleep him, and even if some producer squawked in his ear he just put it all out there. That's the real history, and he lived through the tail end of the worst of it. It needs to be told, and remembered.

    As to the game, I got distracted and didn't realize Crawford was in the lineup playing third until he threw out Chapman to end the top of the first. Sweet throw - he's still got a cannon - but he doesn't hit well anymore, and after getting on with a walk later got thrown out trying to steal! Oof. Wish he'd had a better showing.

    Those old minor league parks are cool. Glad a few are still extant.
