Willard Mullin‘s Jint was the colossus of the baseball world in 1954, a status celebrated on the cover of the New York Giants’ 1955 yearbook.

    I had the 1957 Brooklyn Dodger yearbook (before mommy made me get rid of all my baseball magazines she said were cluttering up the place) and throughout the 48 pages there were references to “your” Brooklyn Dodgers. One could already see the writing on the wall, if not inside the covers.
