Today I join millions of baseball fans in mourning the loss of #WhiteyFord, one of the greatest, most clutch pitchers the game has ever seen. A legend on and off the field whose spirit will never be forgotten. They sure have a hell of a pitching staff up in heaven. #RIPWhiteyFord

When I was growing up, every left-handed kid (me included) tried to mimic Whitey Ford’s windup. I couldn’t do the Warren Spahn and Sandy Koufax leg kicks. Whitey’s delivery was classic, simple. Rest In Peace to the Chairman of the Board.
