RIP the Silver Fox

Normally I take Sunday’s off, but I just saw on the msnbc website, that one of the all-time heroes from my youth died. Duke Snider was 84 and the last of the Hall of Fame “Boys of Summer”. RIP, Duke. Here’s a nice shot from the ‘net.

    Another piece of my youth is gone. Thanks for the memories and rest in peace.

    This made me very sad to read. Snider was my Dad’s favorite player — he grew up in Brooklyn and was a rabid Dodger fan.

    Somewhere along the way somebody gave my a Duke Snider baseball card which I keep on the stand of my piano. Everyday I stare at that card while I practice. Today’s practicing will be bittersweet.
