Mantle, Williams, Mays, DiMaggio, etc. All the old school baseball players that my old man still says were real players

Always reminds me of the guys who missed years of their primes because of military service. Teddy Williams missed like over 4 years of his prime.

All I hear about is Willie. And if I even think about tryin to compare someone in any aspect, I get hung up on with the quickness.

So all I heard was how great Johnny Bench was, Joe Morgan, Pete Rose, Barry Larkin and Eric Davis.

The only Dodger he always liked was Steve Garvey.
