Three months ago, wide receiver Victor Cruz was the New York Giants’ best wide receiver. So much has changed since Cruz suffered a season-ending injury when he tore his Patellar tendon in his knee.

And, while Williams effectively missed five years to military service (WWII and Korea), he still managed to clout 521 HRs in 19 seasons. Those of us who were blessed to see him play in person will never forget the sight. While his .406...
