This picture below looks more like Mike smoking a single through the
hole on the left side. I dunno, what do you think? The main reason that
I loved Mike Greenwell was because he was all about the team. He wanted
the team to win, so he HUSTLED! I was all about hustle in high school, so
I was all about Greenwell. (Roger had a
tremendous work ethic, as well.) But Greenwell was also out there
every day - playing the field, running the basepaths, hitting behind
the runner...and he was a leader in the clubhouse - helping to bring
about new clubhouse rules, which treated the rookies with more respect.
You should look at the record! When Mike was playing, they won more!
I wish I could find the stats published somewhere, but he was totally
the swizzle-stick in the Sox' drink. So now he's retired and living in
Florida with his family.
