I think I still have a Brockabrella somewhere in my garage. I was a Cub fan who witnessed his trade to the Cardinals. https://www.yahoo.com/sports/st-louis-cardinals-hall-of-famer-lou-brock-dies-232302830.html

Lou Brock was a class act, players today could learn a lot from him. I would say he was in the top 5 all time of base thieves, behind Henderson, Raines, Cobb, and Hamilton. Had he had a better on base percentage, he might have the all time lead in successful steals. Henderson, due to his minuscule strike zone, drew a lot of base on balls and played 5 more season than Brock. RIP.

Go placidly amid the noise and waste, and remember what comfort there may be in owning a piece thereof.

I had a cherished pair of Lou Brock sneakers complete with special tread patter for base stealing.

Rest well, you legal thief!!
