A great neighbor for the 30+ years we have been here. I was fortunate to visit him and see his older baseball card collection, as we discussed our mutual love of baseball and collecting, and the different generations of the game. Reminded me of some of my talks with my dad. With a name like "Hack," how could you NOT love baseball? Rest in peace..... You can watch some Willie and Roberto in Heaven!
