    I didn't dislike him as a player, but I did dislike that the state of the team caused him to be written into the lineup as DH several times.

    Are you saying that in those days of lower salaries, he was reduced to going to Calvin and saying "I got a family to feed, can you give me a little more work in exchange for some overtime pay?"

    Lyman Bostock 11/22/1950-9/23/1978

    There were four glorious seasons between the dash, above. Fans at Metropolitan Stadium and other ballparks saw Bostock bat .336/.389/.508 in 1977, before journeying west to join the Angels for his final season under the sun.

    Now he is safe at home. Rest eternal, Lyman Wesley Bostock.

    Lyman Bostock quickly became one of my favorite players. IMO, he was the best home-grown talent the team had since Carew. He seemed like a wonderful person, which is even better.

    I am personally glad that players can't be free agents after 3 ML seasons any more. The players may disagree.

    Sold or not, empty seats behind homeplate are an eyesore and an embarrassment.
