Dig the Yankees starting line-up, 40 years ago from today:
Player Pos 1 Horace Clarke 2B 2 Jerry Kenney 3B 3 Bobby Murcer CF 4 Roy White LF 5 Danny Cater 1B 6 Curt Blefary RF 7 Jake Gibbs C 8 Gene Michael SS 9 Fritz Peterson P
Yeah, that’s Roye White – as the clean-up hitter.
I was 7 1/2 years old when that game was played. So, I was oblivious to what was going on in Yankeeland at that time. Must have been something, huh?
