Tremendous power bat and great mechanics, from his famously stocky build. One of the coolest nicknames, too!
Watched Jim, with admiration, in the days when he played for Houston. Became an even bigger fan when he arrived in LA in '74, as I lived in SoCal at the time. His presence in the Dodger lineup, where he added much needed "pop," was key in their NL flag winning 102 win season.
Will review the awe-inspiring video of Jim's legendary shot at Crosley Field, and will also take some time to remember and appreciate a great Major Leaguer and a great man.
Thanks for the memories, and the wonderful play, Jim. Safe at home.
