After I finished the player program figured what the heck. Played a RS game and threw him in center. I'm not a very good player mind you. Batted him second. Facing Hershiser I believe in the 3rd inning he hits a 2 run homer. In the 8th game tied 3-3 my opponent has runner on 3rd with 55 speed. He hits a fairly deep fly to right center. Laureano catches it and throws a strike to home nailing him at the plate. Game still tied in bottom of 12th I have a man on 2nd Laureano triples off the wall for a walk off win. He single handedly won the game with bat and glove. Was fun to use an obscure guy like that and have him perform. Give him a try.

Was flipping thru the channels and stumbled across the 1971 Allstar game. WOW...Clemente...Stargell...Bench..Marichal..Killebrew..Palmer...Brooks Robinson...Fergie Jenkins...Mickey Lolich...and alot more. What a blast watching these guys. Whole game on.
Interesting fact about Stan Musial. In 1957 he became the first MLB player in history to have an annual salary of $100,000. In 1959 after a subpar season he went to the cardinals and asked them to cut his salary to $80,000. Imagine that happening today. Noway.
So I'm in 9th inning showdown in the first elimination against Vida Blue. Score is 2-2 so I only need one more run to move on. I have bases loaded and still have 6 outs left. Ofcourse thinking I got this. Hit a fly ball to medium center with 78 speed at 3rd base. So I'm gonna tag up and it's over. Lol I hit the button early and all my runners advance (brain fart). Center fielder throws to 3rd who throws to 2nd who throws to first. Quadruple play. All I could do was laugh. Next batter struck out. I just swung at anything. Now I have 1 out left. 0-2 count I hit a bomb with Dejong. Crazy
For me that's alot of the fun of the game. Finding cards that work for you. As good as that Larry Walker card is I cant hit anything with him. I think that open stance throws me off. My favorite card so far is Dylan Carlson. Seem to have the most luck with him.

So sorry about your loss. Was good that you got to spend time with him at the end. Ironically I am watching the Ke Burns documentary called Baseball. Have seen it many times. Just as I read your post they were covering the 75 series. One of the best ever.watched it live on tv as a teenager. Lots of memories.
