Esposito was 86. He was a star basketball player at Fenger HS on the south side and once scored 81 points in a game. He also played basketball at Indiana. I remember the incident in the game against the Yankees in September of 1960. The Sox were trying to get back in the pennant which the Yankees of course eventually won. Again. Paulwny is correct. Esposito was generally good with the glove, not so much with the bat.
