Remembering the Great Jimmie Foxx Baseball superstar Jimmie Foxx swung into baseball back in 1925 and soon was dominating the game "along with Babe Ruth. In 1932, he hit 58 homers and the follow- ing season won the Triple Crown. In 1932, when he hit 59, it was like 1961 between Mantle and Marts. Ruth beat him out getting 60 :homers tO set along-held ba~ HR record. In terms of being a slug- glng first baseman, Foxx was Just as good as Lou Gehrlg and better than all the rest in baseball. Ted Williams offce stated, =Next tO Joe DiMaggio. he was the great- est player I ever saw."

Date: January 15, 2015 Tara E DeCristofam, Register of Probate Run date: 2/6/15 Foxx's power and speed, no one in baseball today is even close to him. His on base percentage is still in the Top 10. Foxx (1907-67) was so powerful, he was nicknamed the "Beast." He started off with the Philadelphia Athletics as a catcher in 1925-26 before becoming a first base-man for the rest of his long ca- reer. He hit 33 homers trl 1929, 371n 1930 and30 in 1931, which helped the Athleties win three stratght pennants. Foxx also won the Triple Crown in 1933 wlth a batting average of .356, 163 RBIs, and 48 home runs. After that season, he just kept going strong, hitting at least 30 homers in 12 straight seasons. In 1939, he hit .360 with 35 homers. From 1930-39, he hit 415 homers and had 1,403 RBls, By 1935, he was playing first base for the Red Sox. Both Ruth and Gehrig played in New York, Ruth got top billing and Gehrig got far more attention, but Foxx was part of the three best players of their time 'and all time. Willie Mays, Hank Aaron and Mickey Mantle were the three best players of the Fifties and Sixties and together these six guys were, and remain, the cream of the crop. Foxx ended his career with the Cubs and Phillies before retiring in 1945 and was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1951. In all, he hit 534 home runs with a lifetime batting average of .325. He also had a great reputation and was beloved by baseball. They don't make 'em like the "Beast" anymore. Back to Baseball Today The Atlanta Braves pulled off another trade, dealing pitchers Dave Hale and Gus Schlosser to the Rockies for Minor League catchers Jose Briceno and Chris O'Dowd. Hale pitched in 45 games for the Braves last season going 4-5 with a 3.30 ERA. Red Sox Pick Up Lefty The Red Sox added left- hand relief pitcher Robbie Ross from the Texas Rangers for right-hander Anthony Ranaudo. Ross did well in his first two seasons in Texas (2012-13), going 10-2 with a 2.62 ERA. This past season, not so good, as he went 1-6 with 4.70 ERA as a starter before going back to the bull- pen where his ERA soared even higher. Apparently, the Sox are hoping he will bounce back as a new lefty in their pen. Yankees and A-Rod Bonus The New York Yankees are thinking about not pay- t_qg ,L ex Rodrlgueza $6 mil- lion bbnus If he hits, six . homers tn 20t5 and. ties Willie Mays at 660 Career homers, which Would be good for fourth place on the ' all time HR list. Patriots Win Super Bowl Again The New England Patriots have won the Super Bowl once again. It has been a decade since the last time they did this. Quarterback Tom Brady has established himself as the best NFL quarterback in Super Bowl history passing the great Joe Montana, by his perfor- mance in Super Bowl XLIX. The game was simply crazy great. At the end of the third quarter, it looked like Mudville for the Pats, but in the end it was the - " Seahawks with mud on their faces. The whole game came down to the last 66 seconds with the Patriots up 28-24, but Seattle had the ball on the one-yard line. All Pete Carroll had to do to repeat as Super Bowl champion was hand the ball to Marshawn Lynch and the Pats would go home losers. However, the Sea-hawks decided to throw the ball into the end zone for the score. Then Patriots rookie Malcolm Butler made his first ever interception -4" and instead of Seattle up 30- 28, the Patriots won the game 28-24. Brady had a great game despite his two intercepted throws, but the MVP of the game should have been Butler because he won the game single-handedly at the very end. Brady was good, but Butler was the best. But perhaps the MVP should have gone to Pete Carroll for his boneheaded decision to throw the ball with Lynch ready to plow through the line. Thank you Pete Carroll, we couldn't have won the Super Bowl without you. ," d r *
