The "Mayor" Retires
Fellow major leaguers dubbed him "The Mayor" because he seemed to know everyone he met. He chatted up runners at first base, making the game’s luminaries smile by respectfully calling them "Mr." before offering a compliment.

BASEBALL HEAD VIEW - ALL AROUND GOOD GUY. HE KNEW WHEN IT WAS TIME TO GET OFF THE FIELD. MR. MAYOR WILL FIND A PLACE IN BASEBALL!
