Herb Score Dies

Recommended Posts

Herb Score - the immensley talented Indians lefthander who's career was tragically derailed by a linedrive off of his face, died today.

One of my favorite baseball cards growing up was a Herb Score I bought after listening to my father talk about his dominance.

Bob Feller said:

"Herb Score, who was signed by the same scout Cy Slapnicka as I was, would've been just as good if not better than Sandy Koufax if it wouldn't have been for his injury to his eye," Hall of Fame pitcher Bob Feller said. "And Sandy Koufax was the best pitcher I ever saw in my lifetime. He was a very dear friend of mine."
