A Flight To Heaven

What a terrible week this is shaping up to be for baseball, and certainly a terrible day. I didn't really pay attention to baseball until a few years after the Mark Fidrych phenomenon, but I sure as heck knew who he was (the SI cover helped). During tonight's Mets broadcast, it was noted that Rusty Staub thought 1976 with Fidrych was more crazy than 1984 with Gooden.

Not only did MLB Network just show the Monday Night Baseball game from 1976 featuring Big Bird, but I had just been discussing Fidrych with someone not two days earlier. Just very, very sad to hear of the passing of Big Bird.
