Ray

 

 

 

 

 

Bernard Gilkey reflects:

"Maybe the biggest misconception about Ray was that he was so talented he could have done more.  On those days he was locked in, he made the game look so easy.  He had one of the prettiest swings ever. ... I saw the work and effort he put in to achieve what he did.  He earned it all."
