I know his brother Ken, died of cancer some years ago. Never saw them play, but I think they both could flat out pick it. RIP and have a catch with your brother.

Rest In Peace Cletus. I saw you play a long time ago, but it doesn't seem like that many years passed so quickly.:(:

Both Ken and Clete Boyer were terrific defensive third basemen, two of the best of the era. RIP Clete.

Absolutely. Two of the best third basemen I've seen, along with Brooks Robinson.

Rest in Peace, Clete.

How dare you make such a sacreligious statement.

Everybody knows that the best third baseman of that era was Ron Santo.

Seriously, though, both of the Boyers were excellent ballplayers.

Definitely in the top echelon of third basemen I've ever seen. Couldn't hit like his brother, but could he pick 'em at the hot corner.

R.I.P.

You're kidding I realize, but not even close. In his dreams, maybe.
