Here's ESPN's Jayson Stark looking back at Spahnie's career. (If that don't work...try this ESPN Classic web page. And some of Spahn's quotes...man, that's baseball wisdom. (BrainyQuote.com) Weird fact...when Spahnie won his 300th game at age 40 back in 1961, the Braves catcher behind the plate...a rookie by the name of Joe Torre. There's a nice Warren Spahn slideshow and lots of other content on this Journal-Sentinel tribute page, too. (EDIT: Figures... Post #1001 is an old-school topic...too bad #1000 (The W) was such a sad one.) (edited by The Thrill on 10.4.04 1348)

Y!: # 4 Posted on 10.4.04 2151.53 Reposted on: 10.4.11 2152.08 Thought it might be Spahn. I was too young to ever see him work, of course. But Johnny Sain was Bouten's pitching coach when he was traded to Houston in "Ball Four" and I was introduced to "Spahn, thenSain, then Dear Lord, please Rain!" and remember reading about Spahn at that time. I wonder why there's nothing on their web page about it.
