    Recently BoB Oliver passed away at age 77. I didn’t see the cause. However, he was an original Royal and played OF/1B for 10 years in the majors. His son, Darren Oliver, pitched in the majors for 20 seasons.

    Steve Dalkowski passed away.......he was 80 and was the inspiration for " Bull Durham". Class C Stockton in 1960. He struck out 262 and walked 262 in 170 innings....could never get control of his throws.......threw over 100 mph....some said even 125 mph...Ted Williams said......Fastest I ever saw! Rest in Peace Steve Dalkowski!

    I was shocked to see that Dalkowski was only 80 years old. For some reason I thought he was someone from back in the 1930s and 40s and was long dieceased. It is being reported that he died from complications of the Coronavirus but also had serious medical issues on top of that.

    Talk about the power of old cards. When Jay mentioned Bob Oliver died I immediately pictured one of his old cards........in this case his 1974 Topps. But when he mentioned his son pitching in the majors for 20 years, I had no idea who he was!!! I had heard the name but I thought he was a catcher.

    Its funny how a name can conjure up different connections to different people. I believe you're think of Joe Oliver, catcher for about a decade primarily with Cincinnati. Darren was a left-handed starter early in his career but transitioned to the bullpen after about ten years. He ended up playing for nine different teams including three stints with Texas.

    Man, I miss baseball.

    I did not know that Shula played in the NFL as a DB in the 1950s until I read Art Donovan's hilarious book "Fatso". An astounding fact about Shula was he only had 2 losing seasons in 33 years. That will never be duplicated.

    It is also impressive that he successffully coached the run oriented Dolphins of the 1970s and then coached the Dan Marino Dolphins of the 1980s that were historically prolific passing teams.
