Juan Gone

A little late on this but better than never, I guess. Jimmy Rollins' leadoff HR broke Juan Samuel's Phillies record to HR to start a game (note: the all-time leader is the greatest of them all, Rickey Henderson....) Sammy is fondly remembered here at WSBGM's, for his double play combo with Steve Jeltz, his unorthodox throwing motion to first and his fine batting skills. Sammy now is the 3B coach for the Detriot Tigers, and hopefully will be Bill Dancee's replacement shortly. Here's to you, Jaun.

It's safe to say Juan Samuel was the 2nd best player of all time right behind the Rickey!
