Good point JenEllen. I constantly badmouth Peter Deangelis with his musical ballplayers policy but if the Orioles were to win one I could forgive plenty.
Sailor Dan, I don't quite understand what you mean by "...unless you're a Yankee fan." This current edition of the Yanks is the best team I've seen in a long while. They systematically take apart teams with good sound fundamental baseball and they do it like pros (this from a lifelong O's fan, and, alas, a Senators fan and admittedly a closet Yank fan).

To Guest Frankie

Please be advised that to the "Brooklyn Dodger" fans, the two most hated teams that were ever in existence were The New York Yankees and The New York Giants.

This is a definate holdover from my growing up days and Half may family are yankee fans (notice the lower case) so I still "hate" the yankees. As far as their playing abilities go even I have to admit they are good. But they are still the yankees

Since there seem to be a few Toronto Blue Jays fans here I'll ask if anyone can name a Toronto catcher that was signed out of high school in the late 70's and had a lifetime batting ave. of .444 ?? I'll be suprised if anyone can name him.

Wesley, was it you? It sure couldn't have been Alan Ashby or Ernie Whitt!

We need a catcher who can hit TWO forty four!

Rick - No not me - I was always one of the last guys chosen for a team. Theres a song there, somewhere.

This was a trick question. The answer was Brian Milner - my brother in law. And the batting average of .444 covers BOTH weeks he was "in the game" until his diabetes sidelined him. He's a scout now.

Jim Bunning pitched for the Phillies, too, Rick. I can forgive Mbo for not picking up on that; he wasn't born then. I'd like to say I saw Bunning's perfect game against the Mets, June 21, 1964, but I went to see the movie Spartacus that day instead (it was Father's Day, and I sure wish I'd gone to the game with my dad). The Phils had a longstanding knack for choking, and in '64 they did it with a vengeance, losing their last 10 games after having been at the top of the league for most of the season. But it sure was a glorious season until then. I can still remember the numbers of most of the '64 players. (Life is simpler when you're ten.) I used to listen to the night games from the West Coast on my transistor radio with the covers pulled over my head. My dad took me to my first ball game at Connie Mack Stadium (he always called it by its old name, Shibe Park), and I'll never forget going from the dark musty interior out through the passageway and seeing that expanse of brilliant green grass. Veteran's Stadium just isn't the same. Now I get the Giants on the radio here in Hawaii, and I still love listening to the games and visualizing the field. Thanks for starting this, Rick.
Aloha,
Mark
