What happened to Keith Cromer? I seem to have missed something important.

Was at the game he won in 1978 at Candlestick Park against the Giants. Ball Four had changed the way I thought about baseball when I read it in high school, and I was saddened to read about Jim's recent struggles with Alzheimer's. RIP.

May be the last teammate to make Phil Niekro feel young(by less than a month).

Loved Ball 4 as a kid ... bought an autographed ball at an estate sale just a few months ago.  Say hi to Slyke, Jim.

Watched him win 20 games for the Greensboro Yankees in 1960. He lived in a boarding house close to our WWI Memorial Stadium. He walked to and from work when the team was at home. Two years later he was pitching in the World Series. He came back to Greensboro 4 or 5 years ago, toured the old stadium where I spent my youth as a fan. He wouldn't set foot in the new minor league stadium that is just a few years old.

What would he have said about the juiced ball?  I believe, after Bill Stafford, the second Yankee pitcher I saw start a game while at Yankee Stadium.  The stats show just how much the game has changed.  I loved the way it was.


I'll miss him.
