Goddammit. Granted I had completely forgotten that Wendell Kim existed but at the same time it’s sad to hear that he died. He was only 64. Everyone in Boston that’s at least 20 years old remembers “wave em home” Wendell. The guy was a riot. Sure, maybe he was a little trigger happy on sending guys home but it was definitely exciting. It wouldn’t surprise me if Wendell has Ty Cobb in his face right now yelling racist obscenities because Wendell sent him around 3rd on that big baseball diamond in the sky right into a sure out at home. And Wendell will send him again next time too.
RIP Wendell Kim.
