I'm not a baseball fan at all and the only reason I'm posting this is to see if I'm the only idiot that for some reason thought it said "Dee Snider dead" when I first seen it on another board

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

 

Hall of Fame outfielder Duke Snider has died. He was 84.

 

The former Brooklyn Dodgers star died early Sunday of what the family called natural causes at the Valle Vista Convalescent Hospital in Escondido, Calif.

 

The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum announced his death on behalf of the family.

 

Snider was part of the charmed "Boys of Summer" with the Dodgers in the late 1940s and 1950s. He helped lead Brooklyn to its only World Series championship in 1955. Snider also won a crown with the Dodgers in Los Angeles in 1959.

 

Snider hit 407 career home runs.

Yeah, at first I thought it said Dee Snider..

 

Duke was one of the greats, before they stated to supe up the balls to make more homeruns. Before steroids and million dollar contracts.I was too young ever to see him play. Me being a yankee fan, Duke played for their arch rivals The Brooklyn Dodgers, better known to yankee fans as DEM BUMBS. All in all, Duke was a class A baseball player and hall of famer. All I can say is:

Heaven got one Hell of a Team :beerbang:

He was before my time, but I've read a lots of books and seen quite a few documentaries about baseball in the '50s and his name always comes up. R.I.P.

    • Well I love my top 10 and it was basically impossible separating them. All killer albums imo. 
    • Pretty crazy, what's going on in China at the moment. Thank goodness you'd never see something like that happen in Austra- oh. Uh, as you were. There must be plenty of videos like this out and about at the moment-    
    • Haha, a couple of you guys keeping pretty quiet about changed minds on synthwave, after being pretty vocal about how terrible it is/was? I must say, I never got into the dark synth stuff like Dance With The Dead... more for the fact that I need vocals with the synthwave I really dig. I've actually heard a few dark synth bands this year I've passed on, with vocals, that I wonder if there'd be interest in here? Just gotta try to remember who they were...  As for the best of the year, not sure what to make of this year. There's an absolute tonne of good to very good albums, but when I look at the top end I'm not exactly blown away by any amazing albums. Good ones, and a lot of really excellent songs this year... but my highest rated album this year is 82%... which is a good album, but nothing looks like even threatening the 90% mark this year, which seems extremely unusual. The best of last year, for instance, seems a lot better than the best of this year. Still, I can't complain as there's been a lot of good music... just not as many great entire albums. 
    • Another band ruined by frontiers.
    • Yeah, sad news. Even though she was a quiet achiever in that group with Stevie getting most of the attention, she sings Lead on two of my favourite "Fleetwood Mac" tracks. "Little Lies" is a Killer. R.I.P.      
    • For me, "Run-D.M.C." in '88 on their "Tougher Than Leather" tour when I was 16. A bit left field, but I loved these guys in my early teens. They weren't afraid to embrace Hard Rock guitars in their music.    
    • I was there too mate. You can't beat the atmosphere of a concert "in the round". I'm surprised it doesn't happen more often.
    • Keep a lid on it 
    • This one looks like a fun ride....
