March 16, 1961: Around the league, Elgin [Baylor] is known as "The Big Hurt." He's a four Band-Aid player. The man assigned to cover him usually stocks up with liniment and aspirin and approaches his task with all the zest of a man asked to defuse a live bomb with a hairpin. At 6 feet, 5 inches, 225 pounds, Baylor is such a powerful, punishing player that his teammates, to a man, are positive he could win the heavyweight championship of the world if he wanted to train for it, Jim Murray says.
