You’ve heard their
names a thousand times. Cobb, Ruth, Mantle, and Mays. Echoing
from the stadium loudspeaker, on classic t.v. rebroadcasts,
or directly from your father’s lips, the stars of
baseball’s past continue to live on in the hearts
and minds of baseball fans everywhere.
He was the fastest man
from home to first (Mantle), he had the most devastating
curveball you’d ever seen (Koufax). But one man, on
one team, can only accomplish so much. A team consists of
25 players (give or take), over 162 games (give or take),
and the greatest memories of baseball’s past come
from the common players, at the most uncommon of times.
