Yep, way back then or in the present time....... there just isn't/wasn't anyone like Stan the Man. He was humble. Never one to do fiery speeches but believed in leading by example.

From I believe Mays book....

Mays, McCovey and some other black players are playing cards before the ALL Star game. White players are not speaking to them or welcoming in any way. Stan the man just walked up, sit down and started playing cards with the black players. Talking to them and cutting up just like they had know each other for years. Seems like a little thing now but back then, it was a big deal.

If he came home with 2 D's and an F, that's 3 fingers (and this was a big dude). Does that sound hideous and disgusting? Absolutely. Did the kid ever get anything worse than a C after this rule was implemented? Not a chance.

I'm not saying it's morally right or wrong, but does it make the child because of it? Think about that for a second.
