Johnny Roseboro

On this date in 2002, Johnny Roseboro passed away at age 69.

"When Marichal came to bat, I tried a knockdown from behind the plate, throwing the ball close to his nose when I returned it to the pitcher. I expected Marichal to attack me in some way. If he had said anything to me, I had studied karate and I was ready to annihilate him." - on his 1966 brawl with Juan Marichal
