RIP Oscar Gamble

Oscar Gamble and ‘Fro

Saw that one time Yankees outfielder Oscar Gamble died at age 68. He was, by now, probably more famous for his hairdo than for his baseball skills. But he hit .265 with 200 home runs in 17 years. He made the World Series in 1976 and 1981, playing with a losing team each time. He retired in 1985.

He liked to say he had the biggest Afro in baseball. Most people agreed.

RIP, Oscar.

    That was a first-team ABA type of Afro. RIP, Oscar.

    He had to cut his hair each tie he came to the buttoned down Crankees.
