  1. While researching another player for my blogs (maybe Ernie Banks or Willie Mays), I learned that Ike Brown played in the Negro Leagues.

    I would have thought he came along too late for that.

  2. Whenever I see an Ike Brown card I am reminded of my Strat-O-Matic playing days of the 60s and 70s. Ike Brown's 1971 card was just off the charts because of his dingers in a limited number of at bats. I'd play him as a starter and he'd hit 40 homers in a half-season replay. Good Times.
