Ink StainAnyone is welcome to submit a Guest Blog Entry to torontomike.com. I received the following entry earlier today.

Thoughts & prayers for Kirby Puckett who suffered a major stroke this morning. My kids being 14 remember him as the "pudgey guy" who could play baseball. Kirby - you deserve better.

All the best Kirby.

I remember Kirby very well and found it awfully easy to root for him. He didn't seem to have an athletes body but boy could he play ball. He retired early because of glaucoma and now this. I hope the emergency surgery is a complete success.

When he retired in 1996 he made the following statement which says it all. "I was told I would never make it because I'm too short. Well, I'm still too short, but I've got 10 All-Star games, two World Series championships, and I'm a very happy and contented guy. It doesn't matter what your height is, it's what's in your heart."
