Topic - Don Zimmer
Zimmer died Wednesday. He had been in a rehabilitation center in Florida since having heart surgery in mid-April. He spent more than 60 years in baseball, most recently as a senior adviser for the Rays.
Duke Snider played center in Ebbets Field and stickball on the streets of Brooklyn. He was immortalized in a song recalling a golden era in baseball and was once part of one of the sport's great debates.
To his mother, he was Ed. To everyone else, he was "The Duke of Flatbush" _ revered by a borough of baseball fans and forever remembered in a song that romanticized a most golden era.
"We had a lot of great times. I loved listening to him every day," he said.
