As Major League Baseball begins its post-season, let us pause and remember the late, great Bill Freehan of the Detroit Tigers, who died this past August 19: a Catholic gentleman and a great ballplayer.

Bill Freehan of the Detroit Tigers died Aug. 19. He was a Catholic gentleman behind the plate…
Praise the Lord
