Johnny Podres, Brooklyn Dodger pitcher, 1955 World Series MVP (first person to win the award). There aren't that many 55 Dodgers left. Roger Kahn's Boys of Summer chronicling that team is a great read once you get past his Eastern European socialism nonsense.

Godspeed Johnny.

What's nonsensical about Eastern European Socialism? Next you'll be saying the influx of Islam in Europe could have some kind of negative side.
