Jim, you must be drinking from the same well as Mark Mandel; you're
off by a decade too, only in the opposite direction.  The seventies
get no respect.  Vida Blue was 70's, not early 60's, although his
best season was 1971, his rookie (of the year) year with the A's.
His name (unlike our Vida's) was pronounce to rhyme with Ida, sweet
as apple cida'.  He refused his owner's bribe to change his name
officially to True Blue.  (This was the era of Catfish Hunter and
Mudcat Grant.)
