50 Years of the Moon Man

Congratulations,  Mike Shannon, on your well-deserved retirement. Thanks for the wit, wisdom and company all these years. I'll miss hearing your voice coming out of radio every Summer.
I've got a handful of these classic screenprints left if anyone still want one. Drop me an email. I always loved the below story about Shannon during his playing days on the Cardinals' trip to Japan in 1968. I never heard him mention on the radio but it's in Bob Gibson's book and I've heard Tim McCarver mention it on-air.
Anyway, godspeed Mike Shannon. See you at Fast Eddie's.
