Duke Snider Dies At Age 84

Duke Snider Dies At Age 84

He was a great player and a guy who made was mentioned in a song that was a bigger hit than Terry Cashman ever thought it would be. I had the opportunity to interview Terry Cashman ( the songwriter of ” Talkin Baseball ( Willie, Mickey and The Duke ) and Terry claimed when asked why those three names” Those were the guys that everybody looked up to and he could not think of any one else but Duke Snider to finish up that line.

The bad news is not only that Duke Snider passed away at 84 but we are all starting to lose our childhood heroes as we begin to get older.
