    He and the other Willie were certainly a dynamic duo.

    Long before exit-velo and launch angle became a part of the language of baseball, you had the likes of McCovey, Mantle, Killebrew, Howard, Strawberry and Fielder. They just hit the ball very hard and very far. No corner infielder dared play in on them. RIP, Stretch
