RIP - Ed Stroud

Former Senators' and White Sox' outfielder Ed Stroud passed away on July 2nd in Cleveland at age 72.

Stroud's death came one day after fellow Ohioan and White Sox outfielder Mike Hershberger.  In fact, they both spent their final season with the 1971 White Sox.

Ed's big-league career began with the ChiSox in 1966.  In early 1967, he was traded to Washington for veteran outfielder Jim King.  After 4 1/2 seasons with the Senators, he returned to Chicago in 1971.

Ed Stroud was a certified stud in my 1970 Strat-O-Matic league. It defied logic but he tore the league up. That's how i always remember him.
