Joe Bauman dies

Just heard on the Rangers telecast that Joe Bauman has died.

Unless you read the Bill James Historical Abstract cover to cover (like I did, numerous times, in my teens), you've probably never heard of Bauman, but he had some mammoth seasons in the old Class C Longhorn League (based in New Mexico and West Texas) back in the 50s, including a 72 homer season for Roswell in 1954.
