1. Wow! Bummer.

I didn't see him play until the tail end of his career in the late-70's. I remember studying the back of his baseball card and marveling at both his stats and longevity. By 1978, he had been around so long that Topps starting using that weird smallish font they used for players whose careers extended 18+ years just so they could squeeze all their stats on the back of the card.

RIP, Stretch.
