The “Duke of Flatbush” passes away

Some of us, my self included, remember the Brooklyn Dodgers.  I grew up with Pee Wee Reese at short, Jackie Robinson at second, Gil Hodges at first, Don Newcomb pitching, Roy Campanella catching, and, my all time favorite, wearing number 4, Duke Snider in center.

My heros.

Mr. Snider passed away today. 

And so did a piece of my childhood.
