I wonder if Bill James will post something about him here. :-)

My offense-only system prefers Rabbit Maranville, which is not a good thing for White.

My favorite player ever. When I was a kid I always played second if given the choice, because I loved Frank. And even then my arm was weak!

I have met him several times as an adult, and have never once been disapointed. It's nice when you hero lives up to your ideals.

It's too bad he hasn't got a chance to manage in the majors, having heard him explain his coaching method I would think he would be an excellent addition to any team's major league staff.
