Nice thought. Flood was a great man who changed everything for the players, for the better
.@curtfloodjr As we prepare for the first World Series in Washington since 1933, I am thinking of your dad, whose sacrifices made today’s ballplayers rich and freed them to be able to bargain and decide where they want to finish their careers. Great ballplayer, courageous man.
Sweeny on Coop
I don’t run across umpires often. But I met Eric Cooper in spring training 2001 and would get to say hello every now and then. Nice man who took a lot of pride in his job. Great MLB piece few years ago when he made his first WS crew. Sad news today. RIP Coop.
RIP Eric Cooper
Awful news re: death of umpire Eric Cooper. Didnt know him but shared a super-early a.m. flight w/ him before Gm 3 of ALDS. At gate saw him walk over to an older guy in a wheelchair who was clearly disabled & wearing MLB gear & started talking ball w/ him. Seemed like a sweet guy
