      It's going to be tough for those using 'roids to get into the hall, but I'd lean toward those who just fessed up to it. McGuire isn't one of those.

      3. Elroy Face, one of the, if not the first true relief specialist. Also one of the first pitchers to use the split fingered fastball, called a forkball as an out pitch.

      No he doesn't have the number of saves of some of his more modern contemporaries, but in his day they were far, far harder to earn as well.

        13 Players most deserving to be in, but omitted from the Baseball Hall of Fame

        1. Mark McGwire
        2. My hero, Dale Murphy
        3. Elroy Face

        4. Del Unser, who motivated this skinny kid to play baseball, even if all I could get was right field.

          5. The Captain - Thurman Munson





          He was notoriously chippy with the sportswriters, so they got back at him by not voting him into the Hall. His five years' eligibility is up, and it'll take a miracle to get the Veterans' Committee to pick him up, so he won't be making Cooperstown. That's a shame. It really is.

            So far I have to agree with my choice, Face and Munson. I appreciate the motives behind Murphy and Unser, but I'm not sure they are HOF off the top of my head.

                He should be in the HoF.

                  I was camping with my family at Wildwood State Park, Suffolk County, Long Island, New York. I tuned into WINS 1010 AM to listen to that night's game versus the Orioles, and that's how I heard. It sure sounds crazy, but that was nearly as hard as my father dying four years earlier.

                  That last time I saw the Captain was on a rainy June Saturday of that year, against the Angels. He had started the year on the DL recovering from knee surgury. This might have been his first start since coming back, and he laced one to Death Valley and scampered to third for a triple. Not bad for a banged up old catcher, I thought.

                  It's crazy the stuff you remember, isn't it?

                    Thanks for the pic Bob and the story Marc... . Sure wish he hadn't gone flying that day, or any other for that matter.

                            This guy wasn't too bad either. I never saw a tape measure shot at Three Rivers. I was there days that he hit one out of the deepest part of, and over the right field grandstand at Forbes Field.

                                Forgive me but who is that?

                                It's not Stargell, he's in the HoF.
