The Duke of Flatbush RIP

Duke Snider passed away today at age 84 and with him went some of the last, quiet dignity associated with baseball and its golden age. To quote Dylan Thomas, by way of the Great American Flipping, Trading & Bubblegum Book:

I see the boys of summer in their ruin
Lay the gold tithings barren

RIP Duke
