|One hundred years ago today, Salvatore Anthony Maglie was born, a future right-handed pitcher whose intimidating ways on the mound earned him the nickname of "The Barber."
Given the fact that he played for both the New York Giants and the Brooklyn Dodgers, wouldn't it be timely that Sal Maglie's 100th birthday would land on a date in which the two teams were facing off!
A SABR bio on Maglie is included here.
I can almost hear Vin saying, "Let's go back to this one."
"The Dodgers have always occupied an enormous place in the history of the game. If the Yankees are the most successful team in baseball history, the Dodgers are the most essential. Their legacy is unique."
