STANLEY like in Mickey Stanley. DEEtroit. Tigassszzz. No.24 A solid kid. Played center like he OWNED it. Decent arm Stanley to Freehan for the OUT AT THE PLATE at the plate. YES SIR that kid could run the bases. He could ROUND them bases as well. A decent number of home runs back then TiiiGer. Stadium.... was average size park untill the nineties. Too Big. Too Old. 440 ft STRAIGHT away 385 in the gaps. A lot of lawn to COVER $.50 Bleachers ticket holders to share his time with. Often teasing them with a potential home run ball. Trumble and Kaline Dr. Home to OUR Stanley. 02252020 A FOND memory of a day at the park
