Missing Skipper
Your Nov. 15 issue's The Hot Corner named five future managers who played for the 1972 Dodgers (INSIDE BASEBALL). Unfortunately, you left off one of the best shortstops ever, Maury Wills, whose '72 season was his last as a player. He went on to manage the Seattle Mariners for parts of '80 and '81.
