I am sorry to learn of Duke Snider's death. I first read of his exploits as a boy when I read Roger Kahn's wonderful "The Boys of Summer." I later read Snider's autobiography "The Duke of Flatbush." I would have loved to have seen him play. He probably should have been selected the NL MVP in both 1955 and 1956.
