Dear Family of former Yankees manager Bill Virdon,
He came into his own in 1974, and if he had a few more pieces, as Mel Stootlemyre went down finishing 6-7, could of won the division, but the Orioles were too pitching rich with McNally, Cuellar, Palmer, and Grimsley. The early season unpopular trade showed how he could welcome two future stars in Chambliss and Tidrow, to gel with newly acquired Lou Piniella.
As he didn't last 1975, baseball under George was born.
I liked his laid backed style.
