Lou Brock

Born on today's date, Lou Brock.

"I arrived early because I didn't want to be seen as 'big time'. The last thing I wanted was to arrive when Willie Mays was arriving. I was young and did not want to show disrespect. The game started at 3:00 pm, so I got to the stadium at about 9:00 am that morning. I was the only one in the clubhouse except the young man clubhouse attendant they had there. I decided, being an All Star, that I could be a little 'big time' and I beckoned the kid over and asked him if he would get me a Coca-Cola. The young man returned with my Coca-Cola and then introduced himself, 'Hi, I'm Tom Seaver.' He made me pay for that Coke for about 14 seasons."
