Willie Horton Memories

January 31, 2020

It is the middle of the hype period for the upcoming 54th Super Bowl.

I feel this is a good time to recall a good baseball memory and a fine player, Willie Horton of the Detroit Tigers.

Horton was a member of the 1968 World championship team and made a great throw to nab Lou Brock at home plate in game 5 of that year’s World Series vs the defending champion, St. Louis Cardinals.

Though I did not experience his handshake, Willie Horton is known to have one of the firmest on record. A sign of character? Certainly Willie Horton, a tremendous player, brings back good memories.
