Why did Chris Tripler nominate Walt Dropo for the HOM?

I've thought about it for awhile, and I'm going to nominate WALT DROPO as my HOMer.

* born in Connecticut like me.

* went to and graduated in high school like me

* went to and graduated from UConn like me

* played for my favorite team, the Red Sox

* he had a heck of a career but not HOF worthy, beating out Whitey Ford for ROY is pretty nice though

* I was a teammate of his daughter's on the local masters swim team

* I was given cards directly from his collection

* He lived in the North Shore like me...

I'm actually surprised it took me this long to find my HOMer... I now have a binder dedicated to his cards.
