Tom Tresh Born

"But if you want to talk about a guy whose career just seemed to disintegrate, to come apart at the seams and unravel--slowly, methodically, almost geometrically, like a $35 polyester suit, then Tommy Tresh is definitely your man...In 1962 Tom Tresh had everything. He loved the world and the world loved certainly loved him. By 1968 he didn't have much of anything. He was thirty-one years old; New York was in ninth place...he had completely forgotten how to hit; the Yankees were desperately trying to trade him for just about anything. He was even beginning to get crow's feet."
