Dirt Nap: Whitey Lockman

PHOENIX (JQP) — Carroll Walter “Whitey” Lockman -The guy behind ahead of  the guy.  Look at this, okay? I want you to remember this face, here. Okay? This is the guy behind the guy behind the guy.  No, just the guy  
ahead of the guy.  Just the guy ahead of Bobby Thomson.  Just the guy ahead of the Shot Heard Round The World.  And they’re pickin’ Bobby Thomson up… and carryin’ him off the field!       

If it weren’t for Whitey Lockman, there would be no Shot Heard Round The World.  If it weren’t for Whitey Lockman, there would be no Bobby Thomson to pick up.  The Giants trailed 4-1 in the ninth.  Alvin Dark and Don Mueller’s singles put runners at the corners.  Monte Irvin fouled out.  Whitey Lockman smashes an RBI double.  Whitey Lockman leaves two runners on for Thomson.  The rest, is history. 

Whitey Lockman was fighting pulmonary fibrosis.  Whitey Lockman died Tuesday at the Mayo Clinic Hospital.   He was 82.  

Rest in Peace:

Peace out Whitey.  Six two and Even!

Share the love baby!
