With sadness I read this morning. https://www.mlb.com/news/hank-...baseball-legend-dies
In 1955, I received the opportunity to represent the US Army Baseball Team to play the "Willie Mays" All Stars in El Paso, Texas at Dudley Field.
In the 4th inning, a young 22 year old hitter [no helmet, no batting gloves] at the plate.
I was playing a "deep" 1b, I commented to our 2b, the hitter is "resting".
Our pitcher, a former pro player threw a "fastball", Henry glided to the pitch and hit a "golf tee shot", our SS leaped and the ball keep climbing and disappeared over the light towers.
"The rest is history"
