RIP - Woodie Held

Former Indians shortstop Woodie Held passed away today at 77 years of age after a battle with brain cancer. Sadly, his wife is fighting the same disease. While Held played before my time, I felt like I knew him as stories of his playful antics were regular fodder for filling the radio air time during rain delays of Indians broadcasts.

Rest in Peace, Woodie.

Besides He had an awesome baseball name. Other sports may try but none can compare to the nick names of baseball players.

This is when I know I'm getting old - not a superstar but one of the first baseball cards I ever had - believe he was with the Orioles at the time. RIP.
