Newest MLB injury -- & it happened to Clay B, what a shock -- whose season likely over with what they're calling a "partially torn right flexor pronator mass"
"pronator" is a word I've never seen before --

Koji now w/Cubs -- just saw that this AM -- in the meantime we await word on latest injured bullpen savior Tyler Thornburg
Let's go Sox

April 14, 1967 -- was gonna post about this anyway, but a real nice read in the Herald this morning too -- chek it out

Nope, the spark that ignited it all to this day -- Bill Rohr
mind boggling in so many respects -- 1st Career Start, at Yankee Stadium -- incidental factoid, Jacqueline Kennedy & her son John, then 6, were part of the sparse crowd

Bill Rohr's catcher that day? Russ Gibson -- Who Was Also Making His MLB Debut after 10 yrs in the minors -- hadn't known that
pitching for the Yankees that day? The Chairman of the Board -- who a mere month later would make the final pitch of his HOF career

The tension was high as the Yankees came to bat bottom eight, six outs away from being no-hit. Suddenly the crowd noise increased, and Rohr nearly fainted; coming out of the dugout to lead the inning off as a pinch hitter was Mickey Mantle.

"I'm toast," the rookie thought.

With the kid quivering in his spikes, he managed to retire on a fly ball the Commerce Comet. Mickey was no longer that at this point, however. He was creaky and would retire following the 1968 season.

One of, if not the greatest, catches of Yaz' career came bottom 9 -- keeping alive Bill's no-hitter on a full-stretch flying-leap midair grab of a crushed Tom Tresh shot

then, Elston Howard, 2 out single, no no-no but Sox win, the kid is mobbed on the mound & that's what sparked not only a season for the ages, but Sox fervor after several dormant yrs -- & the season may not have ended up as it did for the Sox without.....you guessed it -- Elston Howard -- he was huge down the stretch for us

yes this established Bill Rohr's legend -- but showing it was no fluke, he cemented it when he beat the Yankees again a week later, At Fenway, with a complete game win w/7 strikeouts & a near shutout only to have it ruined late in the game by an RBI hit by -- you guessed it -- Mr. Howard

a short career it was -- but memorable -- made an appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show & everything -- wild -- Bill Rohr
