R.I.P. Al Rosen

Al Rosen passed away yesterday at the age of 91. He's easily one of the most underrated third baseman in baseball history and if not for injuries which ended his career at the too-early age of 32, he'd be in the Hall of Fame. He was a great player, a class act, and a great trailblazer for Jewish players.

R.I.P., Hebrew Hammer.
