My Pop, 1951 - Age 13

By all accounts, he was already throwing close to 90 MPH at this time. The year before this picture was taken he pitched a one-hit shutout in the Little League World Series finals in Milan, TN, striking out 17. That's 17 out of 18 possible outs if you're keeping score at home. He walked two, and the other out was made when the hitter bunted the ball right back to him.

Throughout Little League, High School, Legion, and College ball he pitched 10 no-hitters. He also pitched batting practice for the 1951 Houston Buffaloes, Double-A affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals.

Pictured in his Buffs uniform with Cardinal scout George Watkins, Hero of the 1931 World Series who homered in Game 7 to defeat Philadelphia.

Thank you for allowing me to brag a little...

Very cool alloak41 -- your dad could really hum the pea -- he'd feed 'em aspirins out there -- they couldn't hit your pop's stuff w/a snowshoe ( I love those old terms) -- looked up George Watkins too, that's bomb




ERNIE GREEN
Browns halfback 1962-68
Was the perfect 'foil' both for Leroy Kelly later on, and Jim Brown earlier
Ernie was great himself & real underrated

Thanks, Stephen. One thing I remember is that no matter where we went in Houston - Restaurants, Astrodome, Summit, anywhere - invariably, people knew Pop. Every time it happened, Mom and I would look at each other and just shake our heads a little. It was uncanny for a city that size. Ol' Dad was quite a sensation in his heyday. OK, I'll stop bragging now.

No need for any kind of "apology". That is cool as hell.

Bert Campaneris
649 SB


Just saw recently, was shocked to see his name in the box score of one of Yankee Stadium's more memorable moments -- Dave Righetti's Independence Day 1983 no-hitter against the Red Sox -- I thought Bert was near the end around this time [of above photo) -- and he got two hits to boot for NYY
well at least it was during a quiet time of the rivalry as the stadium was only about 3/4 filled (41,000 in attendance)
Baseball, hot dogs apple pie, the 4th of July, fireworks, summertime -- good holiday weekend! :fun:

Denny McLain, Curt Flood. Ted Williams


This is still my favorite one

The A's had so many greats near the end of the careers in this era -- Campaneris, McLain, Billy Williams, Rico Carty (Rico, very underrated great), Billy Conigliaro -- heck even Orlando Cepeda played for the A's in 1972 -- even if it was for just 3 games tho -- & WillieMac too, altho he was later (part of 1976 season)
have looked around TNAvail for similar pic as above -- say McLain & Carty w/Dick Williams, or esp one w/Billy C & Williams -- or one of Charlie Finley with Cepeda or McCovey -- it's all good

Monday will always be remembered for that. I had been saving that photo for the 4th of July, but it slipped my mind.

Cornell Green

Green probably would have more interceptions than anyone in the history of the NFL is he was able to catch the football. His teammates called him "Boards." Great player, nonetheless. An All-Pro.

Cool -- w/big Reds machine Tony Perez & Pete Rose on either side -- mayb All Star game when Rose broke Ray Fosse's leg in slide at home plate....
Rusty, a hero in NY & Montreal -- but a Colt .45 at heart -- great career -- played all 162 games in 1971 for Expos, .311 BA, 19 HR, 97 RBI

And when I lived in NYC during the late 70's/early 80's Rusty had the best rib joint in town (with either a Mon or Tues night special that had me there as a frequent visitor.) Used to have a charity rib eating constest there won one year by Willis (no surprise) Reed and one year by Brooke (big surprise) Shields

That Staub deal turned into a disaster for Houston. The original trade was Staub for Donn Clendenon head up, but Clendenon refused to report to Houston (Harry Walker - racist.) Clendenon had already played for Walker in Pittsburgh and knew "The Hat" treated black players poorly.

Instead of nullifying the trade, Bowie Kuhn stepped in and gave us Jesus Alou and Jack Billingham, two pretty fair players, but not stars like Staub. His reasoning was that the Expos were a fledgling start up and needed Staub.

Rusty Staub was a pure hitter with a cannon arm in right field. He was a huge fan favorite for the Astros. One can only wonder how he would have fit into an outfield with Jim Wynn and Cesar Cedeno in the early '70's. It was no surprise that Staub became the first Expo "franchise" player.

This came only a few months after the infamous Mike Cuellar to Baltimore trade for Curt Blefary. Another tremendous blunder.
