Keeping “Shoeless” off of the base paths is a tall order for any defense. His fine striking has helped extend many a rally for his club. He is especially adept at hitting in the clutch with two hands lost. The heart and effort of “Shoeless” can also not easily be measured. He has played with pain reminescent of the tales of an “Iron Man” of old. There is nothing that can hold back “Shoeless” when there is a game of ball to be played.
