When I see the Houston Astros’ Adam Everett play in this current World Series, I cannot help but think of Fred “Chicken” Stanley. There’s just something about the kid Everett that makes me think of Chicken.
Ironically, Stanley (like Everett) was drafted by the Houston Astros (back in the 8th round of the 1966 amateur draft).
Here’s a trivia question for you: How many Yankees players appeared in at least one game in the pinstripes, every year, for the period 1973 through and including 1980? The answer: Just two – Fred Stanley and Graig Nettles.
Try that one on your Yankees fan friends someday.
