Horrible news from Austin A-S that Don Baylor has passed. A remarkable man for his strength, courage and integrity.
Just read it

A true Gentleman of the game. Damn feared right handed hitter in his prime. Had an unbelievable knack of getting HPB. RIP. Prayers go out to his family.

I loved Don Baylor. As a kid I used to emulate his batting stance, standing straight up and with that small kind of halo circle he used to do with the top of his bat waiting for a pitch.

He was known for getting hit with pitches, and I remember watching a game where he got hit in the neck with a pitch, didn't budge and just walked to first base.

awful news.
RIP

RIP Darren Daulton too. Died at age 55 of brain cancer after a 4 year battle.

Yep that tough bastard never so much as shook or rubbed where he got hit, just trotted down to first.
RIP.

The first Yankees win I ever saw at the Stadium was by Don Baylor

The first 3 or games I ever went to, they lost. Finally saw a win when Baylor led off the bottom of the 10th with a walk off against the Twins. Summer of '83. RIP, but man.

The middle of a few really good Yankee offenses. He was one tough SOB and built like a brick house.
