ran into him at Dick's sporting goods. Had my son with me and introduced him to Gene. For those of you who don't recognize the name....he was a SS for the Pirates in the 60-70's from Richmond, Va. And I believe at one time held the record for DP's turned with Bill Mazeroski. Just wanted to post this for Bubbadog. It's a shame when you talk to one of your childhood heroes and later all you can think of is......... how old he looked. Still it was a treat none the less.

damn had to be a treat. He was one smooth ss. Got his autograph on several baseballs with all the other Pirates from the mid 60's
