Yankee fans remember him for helping coach New York to four World Series titles… and getting into a fight with Red Sox pitcher Pedro Martinez… and getting hit by a foul ball off Chuck Knoblauch’s bat, after which he donned a combat helmet. He player or coached with the Dodgers, Reds, Senators, Cubs, Padres, Rangers, Red Sox, and the Rays.
Here’s he’s seen wearing that post-foul ball helmet during a parade for the 1999 championship team. Earlier in his career, he had almost died from another baseball to his jowly, cheeky noggin. And yet, there was always that smile. (When he wasn’t fighting with Pedro Martinez.)
Rest in peace, Zim. There are no foul balls in Heaven.
Apparently it’s been about a year since TDH came out (wow) which means it’s been the same amount of time since I yelled about “We Shall Not Overcome” not being on the album (double wow)
More importantly this was the first time i ever spoke to Dani in person and when I first met heatherlawtattooer!!!
