My idol when I played in Little League. He always had time for the kids. One nice guy.....sigh. We are poorer for your passing, Stan.
The rookie kept shaking off every call Garagiola made. Curve, slider, fast ball....the rookie wasn't willing to throw.
Garagiola calls time and goes out to the mound...."What's up with this? You gotta pitch something to this guy." The rookie said, "That's Musial, I just want to hold on to the ball."
Garagiola goes back behind the plate and the rookie throws.....
Musial promptly hit it out of the park.
