Bill Lee, born December 28th, 1946 in Burbank.
On November 7, 2008, Lee was inducted into the "Red Sox Hall of Fame" as the team's record-holder for most games pitched by a left-hander (321) and the third-highest win total (94) by a Red Sox southpaw.
Lee has co-written four books: The Wrong Stuff; Have Glove, Will Travel; The Little Red (Sox) Book: A Revisionist Red Sox History; and Baseball Eccentrics: the Most Entertaining, Outrageous, and Unforgettable Characters in the Game.
In 2006, the documentary "Spaceman in Cuba" featured Lee.
I saw Bill Lee speak after the 1975 World Series. A person in the crowd asked, "Just how good is Joe Morgan?"
Lee paused, scratched his head and replied, "I don't know. Let's ask his wife."
