Re: Who would you play stickball in the streets with?
For the Reds player, I would probably take Rose. I would want someone who played during my youth, so I would be considering Reds from the 60s and 70s when I idolized players. I don't respect Pete as a person but he would have a lot of stories to tell. I agree with George Anderson-while I loved Bench as a player I don't know that I enjoy spending a day with Bench, or with Joe Morgan either. Tony Perez would be a possibility.
For the non-Red I would probably opt for Ted Williams.
