Remembering Lyman Wesley Bostock

Lyman Bostock

February 26, 2010 – Some knowledgeable baseball people will tell you that Lyman Bostock was “the best player that you never heard of”. Lyman’s career was cut tragically short, only playing four seasons (three with the Twins and one with the Angels) but he left a lasting memory for many of us. SABR has done a nice biography about Lyman and you can read it by clicking here. There are also some video clips that show Bostock in action and explain the tragic event that ended Bostock’s once promising career and you can watch them by clicking here for part I and here for part II. You have to wonder what kind of career this man might have had.

Lyman Bostock by Daniel Michael – a very nice tribute.

Fifth and Jackson, a great piece by Jeff Pearlman for ESPN. A must read

UPDATE AS OF September 19, 2013 – MLB Network to air the Lyman Bostock story.
