« Is a market top on tap? "Noodles" weighs in [by David Lehman] | Main | At Seventy: A Last Day Journal [by Jeffrey Levine] »

June 21, 2019


You gots to choose Mays over Milner, whatever the year, but I am glad you mentioned Milner whom I had forgotten but now recall. In 1972 at Shea Stadium I saw Mays homer for the Mets. That summer and early fall I got a job that was clerical-minus but did get me free entrance into the Shea and Yankee Stadium press boxes for baseball and football. I remember the September night the Pirates clinched the division at Shea.

Splendid piece and photos. -- DL

Yes, Mays all days
Better than Duke or Mickey

Ah, you got to see Clemente a few months before that tragic flight. --AZ

I used to think it was Mays all the way. But can see the case for the Mick.

The Duke comes in third.

Afraid so. But I rooted fot him -- and saw him get his 1500th hit.

on when I
left the house

ten hours later
to the greatness
