BOSTON POST-GAZETTE, MARCH 9, 2012 Page15 .... inp _ ..... ] EXTRA Inn - by Sal Giarratani Remember the 195 7 Brooklyn Dodgers? The 1957 Brooklyn Dodg- ers ended the storied Brook- lyn franchise as they left for greener pastures in Los An- geles for the 1958 season. While the 1957 team is little remembered, it did finish 84-70. This 1957 team will always occupy a special place in Dodgers history. They weren't the infamous 1951 team. They weren't the great 1955 team but they were the last Brooklyn team. You can actually buy a full- color 40-card set with all 35 players who were on the ros- ter that season. There's even a Jackie Robinson card who announce his retire- ment in early 1957. For info on the card set, go to ronniejoynercomcast.net Bob Gibson and 1968 What a Year I remember the year 1968 for so many reasons, mostly for not very good reasons. That year was one of the bloodiest ones I can ever re- member. The assassina- tions of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Bobby Kennedy took place two months apart. Before America could get over the first one, we were hit again by the violence. Cities were still living in the aftermath of the summer of 1967 when cities burned across the American sky- line. Over in Vietnam, things weren't any better as the fighting grew more deadly. The Tet Offensive in March ended with over 5,000 American dead. By the end of March, President Johnson was forced to announce he would not seek re-election later that year. Then, at the Democratic Convention that LEGAL NOTICE MASSACHUSETTS PORT AUTHORITY NOTICE TO CONTRACTORS Sealed General Bids for MPA Contract No. M296-Cl, 301 NORTHERN AVE BUILDING DEMOLITION, SOUTH BOSTON. will be received by the Massachusetts Port Authority at the Capital Programs Department Office.

MACKEY INTERIMCHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER and EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Run date: 03/09/12 summer in Chicago, the streets were filled with rioting young people and rioting police out of con- trol. The scenes were ugly. Inside the hall, politicians were name calling each other as incivility took con- trol of our nation. Meanwhile, in baseball things were simply great if you liked great pitching. De- troit Tigers pitcherDenny McClain when he wasn't do- ing military service with the National Guard on the mean and angry streets of America was in the starting rotation for the Tigers and on his way to winning 31 games, the first 30 game winner since Dizzy Dean in the late '30s. Also, that season, Bob Gibson was hurling for the St. Louis Cardinals and hav- ing one of the best years in baseball for a pitcher. He was indeed the best pitcher of my lifetime and 1968, the best year any pitcher could ever dream of having. Gibson started 32 games, finished 28 of them, threw 13 shut- outs, won 22 games and finished with a 1.12 ERA. By the way, he actually lost 9 games because his team hit so badly for him in his games.

DeCristofaro, Register of Probate Run date: 3/9/12 are last week's garbage bags. They are a collection of dead men who can barely walk. I cannot tell a lie. The Celtics are playing; like dead people who just escaped the morgue over by Boston Medical Cen- ter. Their record is 15-16 and they are playing equally bad both at the Garden and on the road. It will be a long time before this team gets another Duck Boat parade. It would appear that most of the players are just going through the motions waiting for the final buzzer to ring. How bad is Danny Ainge go- ing to let them get? Some- thing's got to change. Right now, the Boston Bruins could probably beat them in a bas- ketball game while still wearing their skates. The team should be paying fans to show up. Some- thing's got to give. When this shortened season ends. Celtics management needs to rebuild this team and make it competitive once again.

WITNESS, HON. PETER C. DiGANGI, First Justice of this Court. Date: February 21, 2012 Tara E. DeCristofaro, Register of Probate Run date: 3/9/12 time All-Star and three-time Gold Glove winner. He hit a single in the bottom of the 10 th inning in Game 6 of the '86 World Series against the Boston Red Sox and seem- ingly led the Mats to winning both the 6  and 7 c" games to win the whole thing. His nickname "The Kid" captured how Gary took on life with enthusiasm and gusto on and off the field. Carter's career lasted two decades and he played with New York, Montreal, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Mostly, remembered as a NY Mets player, he was en- shrined in the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown as the first player to wear a Montreal Expos cap. Over 19 seasons, he hit 262 with 324 homers and 1,225 RBI. He suffered through nine knee opera- tions and still set the major league for putouts by a catcher. He spent his first 11 seasons with the Expos and was MVP twice in All-Star games. He also was awarded the Roberto Clemente Award for contri- butions made off the field. Carter actually wanted to go into the Hall of Fame with a customized baseball cap showing both the Mats and Expos before Cooperstown overruled that idea. How- ever, forever, he will always be a "Metexpo" to many of us. Mets Honor Carter The NY Mats will wear a patch on their uniforms this year to honor Gary Carter. The patch Will feature a black home plate with Carter's jersey number (8) in white, along with his nick- name "Kid." 51 and Counting Detroit Tigers closer Jose Valverde converted all 49 save opportunities in 2011 and will try and keep this streak going. The 6' 4", 254 pounder will turn 34 years old this month and has now at least 44 saves in a sea- son for three teams. Arizona, Houston and now Detroit. He actually has 51 saves dating back to the late 2010 season.
