Rest In Peace, Duke

Sad news today.

Duke Snider passed away this morning at 84.

The picture on the card above shows Duke shaking hands with teammate Pee Wee Reese after a home run shot. Tonight, the two can shake hands once more on the Field of Dreams. In fact, a full '55 Dodgers squad can now take the field there, as Duke was the last remaining person alive who was on the field for the final out of that series.

He'll be missed.
