    He wasn't shy about throwing at a hitter who was crowding the plate

    I saw my first MLB game in 1969, Cardinals vs Braves. I was 6. Don't remember anything about it other than being there, but here's a partial list of those teams' rosters that summer:
    Cardinals: Bob Gibson, Lou Brock, Tim McCarver, Ted Simmons, Vada Pinson, Joe Torre
    Braves: Hank Aaron, Dusty Baker, Phil Niekro, Darrell Evans, Felipe Alou, Orlando Cepeda

    Two-term Louisiana governor Mike Foster has died at age 90. His first entry into state-wide politics was when he ran for the state Senate in 1988. I had the privilege of shooting and editing his first TV campaign ad.

    Eddie Van Halen?!?! Dead at 65.

    2020 claims the best drummer and now one of the best guitarists of all time. This year has no mercy.

    Eddie Van Halen Dead at 65

    Eddie Van Halen -- the legendary guitarist and co-founder of Van Halen -- has died after a long battle with throat cancer ... TMZ has learned.

    Sources directly connected to the rock star tell us ... he died at St. John's Hospital in Santa Monica Tuesday. His wife, Janie, was by his side, along with his son, Wolfgang, and Alex, Eddie's brother and drummer.

    We're told in the last 72 hours Eddie's ongoing health battle went massively downhill -- doctors discovered his throat cancer had moved to his brain as well as other organs.
