I have just read about the passing of baseball great at the age of 87. He was one of my baseball heros in the late 50's and early 60's. He was not a superstar player but he was a good all around player who would do everthing to make a game more fun and watchable. Two things stand out that he did that i still remember from over 50 years ago, he kick a fan in the butt when the fan ran on the field and when he hit his 100th home run he ran around the bases backwards. It was unforgettable. I loved baseball back then.
