    My deepest sympathy to Chiefy JR’s family. Jr & I shared many Friday nights watching Friday night fights & drinking Iron City beer. We were together and saw Maz’s 1960 homer.We played midget league football & pony league baseball together. He was my good paal & I will always have a place for “Chiefy” in my prayers.
