RIP Maury Wills

#1 Post by Vandal » Tue Sep 20, 2022 1:48 pm

Legendary Dodger base-stealing wizard Maury Wills died last night at 10:15 p.m. at his home in Sedona, AZ, the team announced. Wills was 89.

Wills, who revolutionized baseball in the 1960s with his base-running exploits, served as a base-running and bunting instructor for the Dodgers' Major League and minor league players for many years during spring training.

The Dodgers will wear a patch in memory of Wills for the duration of the 2022 season.

In 2010, Wills was voted as the fifth-greatest Los Angeles Dodger of all-time by readers of the Los Angeles Times.

"Maury Wills was one of the most exciting Dodgers of all-time," Dodger President and CEO Stan Kasten said.
"He changed baseball with his base-running and made the stolen base an important part of the game. He was very instrumental in the success of the Dodgers with three world championships."
