    RIP- I followed his career as a kid. Legends produce and leave more than statistics to memorialize their careers...They leave an impression. Frank Howard left a monumental impression not just for his towering home runs but for his sportsmanship which was second to none. There was a discussion on the boards here as to the longest HR in MLB. Howard should be part of that discussion.

    Experience the World through Numismatics...it's more than you can imagine.

    Often for whatever reason, those big stocky guys don't live to a ripe old age.

    Howard made it to 87 years old, so that ain't bad at all.

    RIP

    One of the true greats of my childhood. R.I.P. Hondo.

    This is for you @thisistheshow - Jim Rice was actually a pretty good player.

    Frank and Boog Powell. The Aaron Judges of their day. Both in size and HR blasts.

    RIP. Frank had some impressive seasons. I sure wish they would have had the ability to measure his exit Velocity. I bet it was off the charts.
