Carroll Hardy, who played in both MLB and the NFL, died on 8/9 at age 87.

Hardy played in the Bigs from 1958-64 with the Indians, Red Sox and Colt .45s. He also participated in 11 games for the 1967 Twins.

Before he made it to The Show, he appeared in 10 games as a RB for the 1955 49ers.

Hardy also has a one-of-a-kind status in MLB, as he was, and will remain, the only player in MLB annals ever to pinch-hit for Ted Williams.
