R.I.P. The Walking Man

Former Senators, Tigers, and Angels third baseman, Eddie Yost. Mr. Yost only had a .254 lifetime batting average, but because he walked so often (1,614 times in an 18 year career), his on-base percentage was a stellar .394 (he also scored a total of 1,215 runs). He was also a wonderful fellow who the baseball community will certainly miss....There, now I'm going to walk to the refrigerator for a beer.
