Mickey Vernon; Smooth Fielder, Hot Hitter for SenatorsThe Post
Mickey Vernon was one of the most popular D.C. baseball players ever and probably the best first baseman. He died this week. I don’t know if this was acknowledged at Nationals Park as his death may not have been known until after the home season ended. Given that he was from outside of Philly, I wonder if there was a moment of silence for him at Citizen’s Bank Park last night. Vernon was also the original manager of the expansion Senators too.

There is also a good write-up on Post-Mortem, the blog about the end of the story.
