50 years after his MVP season, Maury Wills can still toss it

Maybe he can't turn the double play any longer -- sounds like that rotator cuff bothers him -- but the 79-year-old could flip it well enough to sign a few autographs for Dodgers fans at Angel Stadium on Saturday. Wills is currently a baserunning and bunting instructor for the Dodgers, working with both the big club and the team's Minor League affiliates.

Wills won the National League MVP Award in 1962, setting a new Major League record with 104 stolen bases (in just 117 attempts).
