    our prayers go up for Charlie and the Greene family. Charlie served in the U.S. Army. I wonder sometimes what role the great american Mel Pender had in Charlie's life and vice versa. Oh that track and field could have great men of service again.

    Of course, but at least he has medical care unlike plenty of other former athletes so he has a shot at getting better.

    Charlie Green has had rough times?? He was a career Army man and was in charge of some non-profit. With his Army pension and care from the VA he might turn out all right (When I was in the Army he was coach on the Army team)

    But what does that have to do with baseball?

    Not only was I not there, and therefore didn't see any of you (nor could not have done for another 12 years as I didn't get to a US meet till '76), I have never seen a phot of the SFOT 100. If anyone does have a shot of the race where Greene was headed to a 10.0w until he crashed, could they let me know?

    I didn't see any of you, nor miss you. The Phillies were getting ready to move into first place, and I couldn't have been happier.

    But back to Charlie Greene. A wonderful person who's had some rough times. All the best, Charlie!
    Those '64 Phillies' collapse was even worse than the '69 Cubbies!
    Yup, scarred for life. But no collapse beats the '07 Mets
    The '51 Dodgers were pretty bad, too.

    I think Greene was the first cat I saw run with shades on. I know Ronnie Ray Smith and Tommie Smith did but they came later.

    But dj, how happy were you when the season ended ?! As I recall the Phillies had a bit of a problem coming down the stretch....Go Cardinals ! First pennant in 18 years !
    Yeah, well. You don't think there's a reason I stopped playing baseball (aside from the inability to hit a good curve?!)
