Yes, it was Goliat, a weak hitter but not against Don Newcombe. You know your stuff. Now what did Milt Stock do that ensured his place in the Brooklyn Hall of Infamy and ruined what had started out as a bearable third grade for me with Mrs. Schwartzberg?

Hamner is probably remembered by Brooklyn Dodger fans because he was one of the Whiz Kids, a very good Phillies' team in 1950 that won the pennant on the last day of the season in Ebbets Field when Dick Sisler hit a 3-run homer in the top of the 10th. Robin Roberts pitched a 10-inning gem but should have lost the game in the bottom of the 9th. Does anyone remember what Coach Milt Stock did that cost the Dodgers a chance to win the pennant? And does anyone remember who played 2nd base for the Whiz Kids?
