  • Going Back In Time

    If you had a chance to go back in time, which player or players would you love to be able to see play? I am going to say I would love to have seen Lynn, Rice and Evans playing together. I am old enough to have seen Rice during his last few seasons with the Sox, and was fortunate enough to be able to watch Dewey play for most of his later years with the Sox, but I would love to see the three of them together. I just think that that was one heck of an outfield, and to see all three of them in the lineup together, now that is what I call baseball. I would love to hear some other opinions.

    That would be great, wouldn't it?

    I was reading about Jimmy Collins last year, and I would love to have seen him play. That's going WAY back, I know, but he must have been something to see.

          I would love to see Smokey Joe pitch in his prime, and see TW and Foxx in a lineup together. Not a peak time for either one of them, unfortunately, but I think the combo would still be dynamite.
          I think that Yaz in his huge tear late in '67 would have been awesome to witness (I wasn't quite 1 yet).
          The early years of the Babe must have been mind boggling.

            I wish I could have Ground Hog Day experience with game 7, ALCS in 2004. Oh btw, happy Ground Hog's Day!

                        Have you ever been to SU's Carrier Dome? There is a Hall of Fame Room with some photos and information about Jim Brown's lacrosse exploits. I don't know much about his career. You might want to contact the Carrier Dome and ask them what they do have that's related to his lacrosse career.
