George Hendrick was dubbed “Silent George” by the media for his failing to speak to the media. His play was often over looked yet he was a very important part of the St Louis Cardinals during his time there (1978-1984) He was a solid fielder who style made it look so easy that many in the media thought he was loafing and not giving 100 effort yet it was hard to argue with the results. Hendrick career spanned 17 seasons (1971-1988) during which he played for the Cleveland Indians, Oakland A’s, San Diego Padres, St Louis Cardinals, Pittsburgh Pirates and the California Angels.

Welcome to Smallthoughtsinasportsworld. We keep it fun and we keep interesting and informative. On Tuesdays we go back in time with Old School Tuesdays, on Thursdays we keep it fun by Smallthoughts Trivia Thursday and on Fridays is Smallthoughts: Rant of the Week and Smallthoughts:Rave of the Week and we also post the answer from Smallthoughts:Trivia Thursday. I am a lifelong New York Mets, Knicks and Jets and Giants fan. I root hard for my teams and have rooted for them even when it wasn't and in some cases still isn't easy. I enjoy talking sports, and on here I get to write about it as well. I have my thoughts hence Small thoughts, we will not always agree, but respectfully speak about what we feel. I invite your comments and feedback as well. You can also follow me on twitter @bklynboy59 and facebook Jerry bklynboy Small
