Best MLB player ever from Arkansas?

Brooks, best glove at third I ever saw… he should be the top choice.

Lou Brock might have something to say about that, but Brooks was as good as it gets at the hot corner.

Hall of Famers are all pretty good, right?

My first pick was going to be Dizzy Dean, but it’d be hard to argue with Brooks Robinson.

I have a funny story involving Bill Dickey. I know his great-nephew, Skeet’s grandson, who was a pitcher in high school. After Skeet died, Bill made a point of being grandfatherly. He called one Saturday to ask him to come over for a sandwich. Bill had a friend who’d watch him pitch while Bill caught. Said the friend could probably give him some pointers. My friend declined the invitation for some pretty lame reason, but he did ask who it was that would watch. Bill’s answer: “Ted Williams.” Kid still declined–to his everlasting regret.
