|Three Best Ballplayers |
|Leo Durocher played on the baseball diamond from 1925-1945 and was a manager from 1939-1972. He made this statement in a television interview on 'WGN' in Chicago during the 1970's. 'The three best players I ever saw were Willie Mays, Mickey Mantle and Roberto Clemente. Boy! They could do it all; run, field, hit, hit with power and all had great throwing arms. Besides all three played winning baseball, that's why their teams always won. They were all team leaders. They were the best in baseball history.' |
