Maury Wills dies at 89

Doctor Gast


Maury Wills was one of my favorite MLB player growing up. Besides breaking Ty Cob's record with 104 steals/ season, he had a great series against our Twins which helped beat us. Unfortunately he never made it to the HOF while living.

In this baseball era, base stealing  is a dead art. Hopefully Maury Wills death can resurrect it & he could make it in the HOF. Rest In Peace Maury! Thanks for the good & bad memories!

I have to admit, I thought he was already deceased.

Back in the day, I was a Dodger fan in the NL (though not particularly now)

So the '65 World Series was a real dilemma for me. I was a huge fan of both Koufax and Killebrew.

So my 13 yo mind decided that the best outcome would be to have it go to the limit , which of course happened.

Sorry, I know this is supposed to be about Maury Wills.

That '62 season was very special.

I too, hope the stolen base has a resurgence.
