I recall him being teamed as the color man with Jack Drees when the Sox first moved to WFLD-TV from WGN. Thanks for your service to both Sox and may you rest in peace.

I remember very well the no-hitter he pitched against our White Sox in 1956. I was spending the afternoon with my uncle and we listened to the game in his 1956 Olds 88 convertible as he had to make some bookie collections. It was a hot Saturday afternoon in Chicago but the game was at Fenway and as a 10 year old I cried because I could not believe the Go-Go White Sox could be victims of a no-hitter.

Mentioned in the song "Talkin' Baseball" i think that song inspired something here at WSI. I not sure what.
