    Ed Yarnall and Roy Corcoran are pitching just down Airline Highway for the Zephyrs. Definitely have to try to catch the Z's one night when Yarnall is pitching.

    That's awesome! Thanks for posting the list!

    Looking it over, it makes my autographed photo of Joe Adcock in his Milwakee Braves uniform THAT much sweeter!!!!

    I KNEW there must have been a reason why I got that! ;)

    Seriously though, I saw it at a memorabilia show a few years back, liked the photo (like that era of baseball), and bought it without ever knowing that he was a former Tiger!!! How SWEET is that?!?!

    i'll never forget the first time I saw Rios when he was called up with the Giants a couple of years after I saw his 140 lb behind at LSU.

    a 60 lb gain of muscle isn't normal is it?

    he was sent down a couple days ago. not sure why. I suppose for bullpen help.

    he should be on there though. a couple I need to check on that i think are missing.

    its the 1948 Rookie of the Year, shortstop Alvin Dark, aka The Swamp Fox.

    the original power hitting shortstop when there was no such thing.

    no balco here.
