In over 30 years from now on you will be living your adult life. You will have kids and a husband and a job and your fangirl / fanboy time will be over. Of course you will remember how it was to be obsessed with all those actors, singers, bands, authors, you tubers but with your life style you won’t have time to really take a moment to think about all this.
Then one morning you’re driving home from work.
You put on the car radio and suddenly you hear the reporter mentioning the name of a certain actor, band member , author or any other celebrity who influenced your life in your teenange years.
You will think back to how you used to listen to their music, have a fan account for them, reblog every single post about them on tumblr. How you used to freak out when a new movie featuring them was about to come out, or their new book, how you were dreaming of meeting them. How they inspired you and helped you to find yourself.
And right when you are thinking about them a small smile spreads on your face and then you hear three words following their name. “Has passed away.”
And you just park your car in the nearest place and sit there in silence and take a moment till tears start streaming down your face, memories all that those people who played such a big role in your life left.
One of the more memorable stories of the 1990s. It was happening, and then it stopped.
He made his major league debut for Yankees on June 29, 1990 when they called him up from the Columbus Clippers. It was hoped that he would be the heir apparent to Don Mattingly. He started his big league career on a tear, setting a record for the fewest at bats (72) to hit 10 home runs. He also set a record for fastest rookie to 13 and 15 with 110 and 133 at-bats, thirteen fewer than Sam Horn took to reach 13 and two fewer than Wally Berger took to reach 15. He was helped by a three game series at Texas when he homered in each game of the series. At the end of the 1990 season, Maas had hit 21 home runs in 79 games and he finished second in The Sporting News Rookie of the Year Award voting to Sandy Alomar, Jr. of the Cleveland Indians. [Wiki]
Maas hit .252/.367/.535 with 21 homers in 79 games. He regressed in a big way in ‘91, and then, poof. He went to Japan in 1996 and didn’t hit there, either. He’s a financial consultant with Charles Schwab now and has done a couple Yankee old-timer games.
