Just this morning, I spoke with Tim McCarver, the long time color commentator who will be inducted into the Hall of Fame this summer, about baseball in the Sixties and Seventies, this year's thrilling World Series, and, of course, Blass.
Is there anything better than that?
Blass has been nothing short of gracious, knowledgeable, and extremely witty throughout the months I have worked with him on his book. The guy does not have an enemy in the world. Of all of his former teammates, colleagues, and friends I talked to about Steve, they all love the guy. He very well could be the most beloved Pirate of all time.
