  2. Bill Kish. says:

    Brad McCanna was one of the toughest football players I ever knew. But ironically he had hands like Velcro when he played split end, i cannot recall him EVER dropping a pass I threw to him. Ever. He was an outstanding athlete. We played baseball together from the time we were 7 years old as well. Brad was an outstanding third baseman and contributed heavily to the success of many White Sox championships along with Denny Beam. Sincerely.
