There was steroid mud in the 70's. His name came up more than a few times about abuse. Many allegations on the hustlers behaviour.

Nothing this guy has done surprises me anymore. It's too bad because he was the epitome of a hard working baseball player.

No, he pretended to be that. What he was was a liar and a cheat.

You're correct, so I'll rephrase- during the time he was playing he was the epitome of a hard working baseball player. Since then he's been exposed as a liar and a cheat.

I'd be willing to bet if you knew all the skeletons in his closet..... yes.

One question, with all of those 4,256 hits, wouldnt the bat have broken at least once?

Hot to mention those 8000+ pop ups, groundouts and foul balls.

If it's true, then **** him. If not, he's still a lying bastard.

I'll bet this is the first mention ever of Dan Duryea on this web site! Congrats! (He's one of my favorite actors.)

Sports,especially baseball,has been all about lying and cheating
for hundreds of years.Pitchers scuff baseballs,hitters cork or shave their
bats (they also steal signs from the catcher and relay them to any team
mates on base at the time).It's the gambling part that eats me up.
How could you bet for or against your own team??

Just my opinion.
