    Wille was a GREAT Cub. I remember seeing him play for us in the late 60's. Who can ever forget the shot He hit to win the game? It is always sad to see old cubs go. My prayers go out to Willie's family.

    Wow. It must have been rough for him coming from the Negros. Do you have any of his stats with the Negro League?
