Default Al "Red" Schoendienst

I still remember the 1950 All-Star game....in which Al Schoendienst came to bat in the 14th inning and hit a HR to win the game for the National League.

My folks had bought our first TV in July 1950. Just in time to watch this game.

I met Al Schoendienst in Cooperstown some years ago, and I recalled that event to him, and we had a nice conversation. A really great guy.

GOD Bless your Soul, Al......and, GOD Bless and comfort your Family.

Pretty crazy that he just died and I literally pulled this from a UD Ultimate Collection pack I got on the cheap here locally:

It seems the "gentleman" part is lost on many of today's players. RIP Red.

Baseball lost another good one today and not many left from that era when players were players and gentlemen too.
