In 1994, Bob Locker corresponded about teammates, managers, & more.
Al Lopez: Skilled judge of pitching & when to make a change
Eddie Stanky: Really knew the game, lost his cool too much.
Gary Peters: Consummate pro, all around athlete.
Joe Horlen: A "pitcher's" pitcher
Ron Hansen: Quiet professional
Don Buford: Student of the game, hard worker
Ken Berry: Good friend. Hustler, great jump on the ball. Mediocre speed but he always got there.
Ken Boyer: Quiet
Hoyt Wilhelm: The least physical talent, greatest "competitive heart" of anyone who ever played. HOF
J. C. Martin: "Elmer Gantry"
Pete Ward: Dirtiest uniform and nicest guy.
Mickey Mantle: Superman without good knees. Muscles too strong for ligaments & tendons.
Al Kaline: Consummate pro.
Toughest Hitters to face: Oliva and Carew
Thoughts on the strike (1994): Line them all up together and pull the plunger.
