Remembering Whitey Ford & Maury Wills

I can remember watching the New York Yankees play many World Series games in the early 1960s.  I also enjoyed the L.A Dodgers. Two of my favorite players were Tne Bronx Bombers’ pitcher, Whitey Ford, and L.A’s lightning quick Maury Wills.  I watched Ford, a lefty, set a World Series record in 1961, when he pitched 32 scoreless innings.  It broke  the previous record of 29 2/3 innings, which had been set by Babe Ruth.  Wills was an exciting base runner, who pilfered 104 bases in 1962 to break the previous mark of 96 which had been set by Ty Cobb back in 1915.
