    RIP Johnny Sain. Even though he was before my time he brought us one the most unforgettable lyrics of all time; "Spahn and Sain and pray for rain." I didn't know he was held in such high regard as a pitching coach. Going by what ever,one is saying he should be in the HOF. Looking at his record, he was one of many who may have lost some his best playing days to WWII or he would have been in the HOF as a player.

    Also, until Dennis Eckersley repeated the feat, he was the only pitcher to win twenty games in one season and lead the league in saves in another.

    If they are going to induct figures for their coaching abilities, he should certainly be in the Hall. To intentionally wait until the man is gone, however, would be one of the most pea-brained ideas I have ever heard.

    RIP Johnny Sain.

    I got a visit today after school from his teary eyed niece who came over from the senior high school to see if I'd heard the news. It sounds as though the passing was a blessing due to his seriously deteriorated condition. According to the niece, he will be buried in Havana, Arkansas, but there will also be services in Chicago.
