Cleveland Indians Pitcher/Broadcaster dies

Herb Score will always have a special place in my heart. I grew up in an orphanage in Cleveland. As a young boy who was a new Cleveland Indians fan I remember being devastated when Herb was injured by a Gil McDougald line drive on May 7, 1957.

During his recuperation, Herb visited the orphanage and umpired one of our baseball games. That was a big deal to us boys but the special thrill was his donation of a color TV set. Commercially they were scarce at the time. Watching our favorite shows in color was sure a big treat.

Many years later, during the early 1980's when I was living in Seattle, I went to see the Cleveland Indians play the Mariners. After the game, I had an opportunity to talk to Herb and asked him if he remembered donating the color TV to the orphanage. He smiled and said yes. I was grateful to have an opportunity to thank him in person and tell him how much his donation meant to the kids at the orphanage.

Herb was a giant on and off the field. Rest in peace.
