When the MLB post season roll around, it’s an exciting time in baseball. But for me it’s also a time for remembering a good friend of mine and Foley`s that passed away way too soon. Five years ago at this time, Wally Bell left us.
Wally was a MLB Umpire who was quite a character and larger than life. As his good pal John Hirschbeck said Wally did everything at 80 mph. Wally did everything except tell a story at 80mph — that always took lots of time.
I miss Wally and I would give anything to have him tell me the same stories over and over again.
