Default In Honor of Eliot Asinof Show Off Your 8 Men Out

Posted By: Kenny Cole

He was one of the early authors, Harold Seymour being the other one who comes to mind, who sent me to an earlier baseball era -- an era both good and bad. I always wanted to talk to him about his impressions of those people who were involved in the series whom he was fortunate enough to interview and get answers from. As I understand it, many of the participants wouldn't talk to him.

I wonder how his book would have been influenced (if at all) by the Grand Jury testimony that has since come to light. In any event, he did a great job with what he had and I salute him for that.

That's a good old age. They needed a color man up there anyway. RIP

I was reading his obituary this morning and learned he was born in 1919, which seems only fitting.

I also discovered he lived in Cedarhurst, NY, the same town in which I was raised. However, I never heard this before and I'm surprised nobody ever mentioned him as a favorite son.
