His son, Eddie Ford, played for Carolina in the early 70's. Sat next to him in my history class and we talked a lot.

It's sad losing these links to the former generation. Ford just overlapped with Dimaggio who just overlapped with Gehrig and Babe.

I honestly was not aware that he was still alive. But I remember him well. Outstanding contributor on some great teams.
