Reiser, not Maravich. W.C. Heinz takes a look at one of the top 100 ballplayers of all time. At least that’s where Ritter and Honig have him ranked. Who am I to say they were wrong? In any case, he played baseball like a football player. Incidentally, at the age of 23, his stats were very similar to those of Barney McCoskey. McCoskey was a doppleganger for one Dick Wakefield.
