He played a child's game. He was good at swinging a stick at a ball. BFD.

He actually was a BFD. Do you know that he once ask for a pay cut because he didn't play as well as he thought he should? Not one of the millionaires we see play today would even think about that. He played for love of the game. The idols you see now play for the cash and only lots of it.
Think about what you posted. Will someone post when you die it wasn't a BFD? Perhaps you should change your name to heartless.

He was one of a kind, no doubt about it.
There's an era of lovely manners and do the right thing that is quickly fading from reality. So sad.
I've really enjoyed the various news clips of him today! What a wonderful individual!

You have NO idea what this man did for the community. I suggest you watch channel 4 tonight and look at the story they did on channel 5 last night. I also suggest you do a little more research on him before you say BFD. He was a BFD! He did something that changed my families life and he did that for many many others too.

Yes he did want to take a pay cut one season and he also left baseball to serve this country. How many other ball players can say that? He was a true down to earth human being BEFORE he was a ballplayer. He NEVER let it go to his head and was a very kind , considerate person.

The story on channel 4 tonight and the one on Channel 5 last night is about a Granite man. And for once Granite made the news , good news I might add and it wasn't some toothless hoosier that we usually see on the news from Granite!

I read this on f.b so I don't know how true it is but thought it was pretty cool

Yesterday's high temperature was 66. The Blues scored 6 goals. And, according to his grandson, Stan always said "If you're not 15 minutes early, then you're late." He passed away at 5:45, fifteen minutes before 6:00.
Here's to you, number 6.
