    Why don't we have an emoji that expresses sadness.

    The man could really play the game.

    some really nice tributes on sports radio, on Dan Patrick's show Johnny Bench called in and talked about Willie being the most feared hitter he ever played against and probably the nicest of all the guys he met over the years
    Bench said anytime McCovey came to the plate he (Bench) didn't have a pitch he know he could call and get it by McCovey, also said the hardest ball he ever saw hit was a liner McCovey hit at Bobby Richardson, Bench said when he saw it he was afraid Bobby might be hurt :)
