I encourage people to ask about these players listed here daily because I usually just give a brief summary in most cases unless the article is player specific. If I had wrote as much as I could about all the players mentioned above I’d be here forever each day but I’ll gladly answer any specific questions and I appreciate any comments, especially if people have certain memories of some of the older players

Don’t sell Hernandez short just because of weak stats in total as a Pirate. Jackie was clutch in the field when the Buccos needed him most, October 1971.
