Real Men in Real Pants.

This is a 1957 Topps Carl Furillo. Check out those pants, how the hell did these guys play so hard in such gigantic pants? Could any of us imagine chasing down a fly ball wearing such pants? Steal a base? Only if I had a following wind. The question many ask is who are better,todays players or the players of years past. My answer is this, if todays players could play in such gigantic pants then and only then could they be considered great. Only when Pujols et al have smoked a carton of Chesterfields and then play nine innings can they be called greats.
