(The Mick certainly had HUGE shoes to fill!  He had one year under his belt in Right Field before taking over Center from the retiring Joe DiMaggio.  I don’t there has ever been – or will ever be – a switch-hitter with numbers better than The Mick’s.  One in a billion!  None of the clue words gave me any trouble.  I don’t think any are new.  The answer letter layout was just okay, today.  Nice little slice of baseball history, though.  They’ve done Jackie Robinson in the past.  I wonder who they might do next?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
