So Long, Catfish

For many who grew up in North Carolina, Jim "Catfish" Hunter was baseball. A definitive home boy, he pitched, and pitched brilliantly, for the A's and, later, the Yankees.

Now, sadly, he has passed away from Lou Gehrig's Disease. It seems horribly unfair, but it always does when death comes early.
