So what was the case with Bernie Williams? Because the Yanks traded Gus Williams because he was basically hazing Bernie.
Seemed to be a tough enough guy and had a really good career. Or was Bernie under the "these days" umbrella?
I mean, personally I favor the days where baseball players boozed all night and took speed the next day to stay awake/hand eye coordination, but that's me.
Oh, and the 80's and 90's where they snorted copious amounts of blow.
Though I'm most fond of:
I believe it was Oscar Gamble who hazed Bernie and it was Gerald Williams who checked Oscar.
Btw, that Dock Ellis animation is one of my favorite videos. HarthorneWingo gives is 5 stars.
Gamble I think is too early for Bernie; they are offset by 10 years. Oscar and Walt Williams (he of the no neck) may have been teammates. As, it was Gerald Williams. I know the name was with a G*
Oscar Gamble was gone before Bernie was around. Gerald and Bernie were very good friends. There was no Gus Williams. The player that hazed and really got on Bernie when he was young was Mel Hall.
