Mods, I am not sure this is the right place for the passing of a HOF player and a boyhood legend, but I did not want Mr. McCovey's passing unnoticed.

To me, in the days before inter league play, 24/7/365 sports talk/cable noise and the omnipresent internet with advanced statistics and metrics... Willie McCovey was a legend from the seldom seen far west.

He had power galore. A legendary team with legends as teammates.

God speed, Willie.
