Anybody watch the show on the MLB Network about Icons Lost last night? It was about the passing of Tom Seaver, Whitey Ford, Al Kaline, Joe Morgan, Lou Brock, and Bob Gibson. I thought it was very well done.
Johnny Bench told a very good Lou Brock story. He said he usually couldnt wait until St. Louis come to town because he wanted to go against Brock. And how one game Brock was leaning off 2ndbase so he flashed the sign to Tommy Helms. The pitch is a high outside fastball and he comes up firing a dart to Helms at 2ndbase and the next thing he knew Brock was standing on 3rd..:)
