    Really? That’s too bad. He was a great player but equally as good in the booth.

    Wow. Sad to hear.
    As kids, we'd imitate the batting style of the greats, like Morgan.
    With Morgan, we'd flap our right elbows down, back and forth.
    Great memories.

    RIP Joe...you were one of the greats.

    I used to imitate Mike (the human rain delay) Hargrove as a kid. Couldn’t wipe the smile off my face as I could see how it would piss off the pitcher. I couldn’t hit worth a shit so had to improvise. Just occurred to me that’s probably why I got beaned so often. Joke was on them cause yeah I couldn’t hit but damn I could steal some bases : )

    Good times

    It makes me feel sad and old to watch my hereos pass on.
    Joe was a joy to watch.
    Whitey hit hard.
    I remember watching him pitch at Yankee Stadium. Then in the 70s, he would show up with Mantle in Spring training, and chat with kids, autograph, or play catch.
    No fences, police, just a dozen or so kids that cut school.
    Mickey was always with a drink.
    Later in the 80s, we would drive by Whiteys house on long Island, and he always waved back.
    Dam. It was just yesterday they were all on the field.
    RiP.

    I used to wonder why my dad would get this sad look on his face when people he didn’t know passed away. Now I get it—it’s like slowly watching the world you love disappear.

    Somehow my dads heroes seemed to live longer—I was an adult by the time DiMaggio, Mantle, and Yogi passed away. Even in my life they were still part of baseball in one way or another. My son has barely known anything about Seaver, Gibson, Morgan and others.
