Willie Stargell

On this date in 1982, the Pirates retire Willie Stargell's uniform number 8.

"I'm always amazed when a pitcher becomes angry at a hitter for hitting a home run off him. When I strike out, I don't get angry at the pitcher. I get angry at myself. I would think that if a pitcher threw up a home run ball, he should be angry at himself."
