Yea I remember that. It was like the Senate Insurance Company of today. They would take anyone.
Funny how you remember one play like it was yesterday. They had just brought him up from Chatanooga or maybe Rocky Mount (or was he from Rocky Mount?) and on a very cold April afternoon he hit a line drive into the left field bleachers at Griffith Stadium and the ball hit a railing and bounced all the way back to the infield.
