50 years ago today, the Phillies began their 10 game losing streak to go from 6.5 up with 12 games left to 2.5 down with 2 games left (Cards had 3 left). For my 13 year old self, it was a big of a heart break as my 7th grade girl friend breaking up with me. I got over the Phillies’ swoon during the 2008 parade; I felt the weight of 1964 just lift away from my body. Some of my contemporaries still suffer the torment.
This story is actually about Chico Ruiz and his sad and early demise.
