SportsFilter: The Friday Huddle:

A place to discuss the sports stories that aren't making news, share links that aren't quite front-page material, and diagram plays on your hand. Remember to count to five Mississippi before commenting in anger.

RIP Eddie LeBaron, former Washington and Dallas QB and a worthy competitor at 5'7".

Couldn't resist linking this photo, which was included in the ESPN and NYT coverage.

It looks like a tsunami is about to break over the top of both LeBaron and his lineman. I think the opposing DT is Big Daddy Lipscomb. The size differential is noteworthy.

RIP Eddie LeBaron

Here is a short autobiography that talks about LeBaron's Marine Corps service. He downplays much of what he experienced, but judging from the actions in which he participated, he was one very tough customer.

MLB announces three rulings in a row today. That's called a Friday News Dump.

Josh Hamilton - No problem!
Jarred Cosart - Small problem!
Ervin Santana - BIG problem!
