So for this Shit Storm we'll share our favorite baseball players of all time.
Not only was he a MVP in my birth year but he was the one guy who made me love the Birds on the Bat. When I moved to MO in 94 the Cards sucked. I had to watch Bernard Gilkey and Brian Jordon. Gilkey was a hometown guy but his .275 average never really caught my attention. I really wanted to like this team and the Wiz was awesome but the guy who I fell in love with was Willie Mcgee. The guy would strike out and I'd be ready to throw my Sega controller against the wall until I saw him hustling back to the dugout. He'd hit into a double play and lose his helmet running out to first.
This is what most fans think of Willie, and that's a shame because he was a great player, and really the reason I started rooting for every team in STL.
Not the best tribute to Willy, but it will do.
Shit Storm begin.
