Many of you remember October 3, 1951 as the day of Bobby Thomson's famous home run. Not us here at G:TB. We remember it as the birth date of a true American hero. A man drafted by four teams in three professional sports. A man who killed Rawlings baseballs with his bat, killed Canadian birds with his rocket arm, and tried to kill American fans by hurling his bat at fans sitting along the third base line.
Happy birthday to David Mark Winfield, the pride of Minnesota. We salute you by posting a picture of your 1974 Topps rookie card.
