TTM Success - Marty Marion

I mailed a ball to former St. Louis Browns manager Marty Marion on January 20, 2011 and received this ball back today (the mail came yesterday, but we were at a hotel in Raleigh). That's a 9-day TAT for a free TTM. Richburg South Carolina's own Marty Marion (b. 1917) played in the majors from 1940-1950, 1952 and 1953 for the St. Louis Cardinals and St. Louis Browns. He was the 1944 NL MVP. He retired with 1,448 hits, 36 home runs and a .263 batting average. At age 93, he is the oldest living former Major League manager. He managed the Cardinals (1951), Browns (1952 - 1953) and White Sox (1954 - 1956). He won the World Series in 1942, 1944 and 1946 with the Cardinals.
