old baseball players seem to be dying in droves. since seaver i can recall lou brock, bob gibson, whitey ford and today joe morgan, all hall of famers with morgan being possibly the greatest second basemen of all time.
al kaline, too. sorry, tigers fans.
we will all be part of a drove
i promise to give you a two line write up on sustenance. i want to be memorialized on the powder room.
How are you feeling, Dave?
mostly fine but i have to get an mri next week so.... we will see. i had an on base percentage of .455 in my last year of little league. just make sure someone mentions that.
Glad to hear it. A team name and photos/team portrait along with any other stats would be useful.
I could see you getting a lot of hit-by-pitches.
yankees, sadly. theres a couple of pictures somewhere but i dont have them including a team photo with the coaches who were definitely out of the bad news bears model, older townies that hung out at a bar called the rec.
walks, bunts and slow rollers to the left side of the infield as a left handed batter were my stock in trade probably because i didnt like to get hit by pitches and opened my stance toward first when swinging. one team employed the reverse shift moving the third baseman in and the second basemen just to the left of second base as a countermeasure. this was not normal. dont think i pulled the ball to the outfield until the 8th grade in the next league up.
same year (1981), different sport.
