Agreed, very well said C70. Whitey was truly one of a kind and you captured him well Daniel. Thank you!

Thank you for the article. Whitey was a great baseball man and a great wit. One of a kind. He will be missed. Also saddened by the passing of Carl Erskine. He played before my time, but was a very good baseball player and an even better person. Whitey and Carl, rest in peace. 🙏

I had just heard reference of Erskine recently and marveled that he was still alive. For him to pass right after Jackie Robinson Day is strangely appropriate.

C70, I enjoyed the read. If anyone wants to read a good biography on Whitey, read "The White Rat"...

RIP Whitey

Nicely written. Whitey was truly one of a kind and we were lucky to have him.

Your book really highlighted that!

Ironic that you address the Oakland connection. In the article I sent you, "Will Organ for Food," I wrote about the Cardinals playing the A's. In that game, it was the first time back to St. Louis for Stephen Piscotty. We cheered for him loyally.
