Here's why this topic resonates to me.

My Grandfather was a minor league/semi pro baseball player before and after WWII.
He told me once that he played a demonstration (cash) series against the Greys.

He knew who Mr. Gibson was.

Daddy Joe was a life long Pirates fan - loved Roberto Clemente.

He would wax eloquently about Willie Stargell's power.

He was also a legit, high-level baseball player

Well, he said that "Mr. Gibson" was the most talented ball player he ever saw.
