There are leg kicks and there are leg kicks.

Love all the leg kicks. A couple more: Dontrelle Willis, who turns up all over the place on a "high leg kick" search, and Palmer, whose stride was probably longer than it was high.

We've gone from eloquent portraiture of Mathewson, Paige, and DiMaggio to Bad '70s Hairapalooza...

I HATE Brandon Arroyo's leg kick.

leTeReL (Leee), Sunday, 28 November 2010 18:40 (eight years ago) link

I really get a kick looking at 70s baseball players. I love a diverse thread

van smack, Sunday, 28 November 2010 18:47 (eight years ago) link

Let's hit the '80s/'90s then:

I was just kidding--I worship '70s baseball. I still count it as baseball's greatest decade, from start to finish.

Speaking of which, another SI cover I always loved:

They should revisit it at some point--have, say, Halladay and Hernandez recreate the exact same shot.

This team shot of the 1975 NL All Stars was really cool. Lots of cool players in that picture. Kinda neat to see a young Gary Carter in the front row. Look how big Greg Lusinski looks, he is a big beast next to Lou Brock and Bill Madlock.

that may be true but YOU'RE the best person in baseball, period, and it's not just me who says that!
