Aaron Boone - a Hall McCoy Heart-to-Heart
On Saturday, January 30, 2010 MLB Hall of Fame baseball journalist, Hal McCoy, and major league third baseman, Aaron Boone, gathered for an evening of great stories and memories from their two legendary careers.
Former Cincinnati Reds player Boone had open heart surgery in May of 2009 and returned to Major League Baseball a mere five months later.
Recently retired McCoy developed health problems of his own that almost cost him his career six years ago, were it not for the insistence of Boone that he not give up on the job that he loved.
These two baseball greats have forged a deep and unique bond between writer and player.
