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.
If you’ve never read it, do so: http://www.amazon.com/Teammates-Portrait-Friendship-David-Halberstam/dp/140130057X
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.
