One of the three names I remember being mentioned most by my dad while I was growing up (along with Bobby Doerr and Ted Williams) The Little Professor is dead at 92.

  • Dad always spoke of him quite fondly.
    I had a chance, 10 or so years ago, to get an autographed baseball. We shared a mutual friend. But I blew it and never followed up. One of my big regrets.
    The tribute tonight at Fenway should be terrific.

    Worth the read, even to you YFs. Or course, everything by Halberstam is worth the read.
    I can’t imagine the pride the parents of Dominic, Joe and Vince must have felt.

  • Timing.
    Dommy’s death has only reminded me of my youth, when baseball was prefect.

  • Dom D was a terrific player and a class act.
