“She knows once I cross the Mississippi, I can put this hat on. I hide it (at home in Iowa). We don’t want to bring up any knowledge of the fact because we have a 16-year-old and she doesn’t even know I played. Once she finds out that, then she’ll find out the other thing and we don’t think she’s quite ready for it yet.”
She is not ready to come to these things. She will, I hope, some day because they all ask about her.
Also, she's 16. She has the internet. She knows.
I agree...it's awfully presumptuous to believe that just because the internet exists a teen is going to be searching for her dad online. Most teens I know have no interest in even searching their own names, and surely don't care enough about their parents.

They had a daughter 24 years after getting married? Wow.
Which is more embarrassing for a teenage girl: (1) Having a 70-year old father; or (2) Having renown wife-swappers for parents?
I suppose it's better than finding out that Vinegar Bend Mizell swapped my dad a wife for her.
To a 16 year old, 40 = 70. If you have a 16 year old daughter, she thinks you're ancient. If you're 70, she may notice you seem older than her friends' dads but she will probably just think that is because you're much more lame than they are, not that you're actually physically older.
Let's see ... I'm 45, my daughter is 16, my father is 71 and my half-sister is 11 ...
Come on, everybody knows you have to evaluate a trade according to the information the parties had at the time, not by what happened subsequently.
I do think she's a little old to have this kept from her, but that's not my business, I don't suppose...

Ok, with all the negativety already. No one has mentioned that Fritz currently has two hysterically funny books out right now. I got them both from Amazon. He has lots of good anecdotes in there about his Yankee days as well as his personal life. They're written in his own inimatable style without a ghost writer. I personaly thought they were insightful and funny as hell.
We were all 16 once and I don't know about you but I sure as hell could tell the difference between my parents, aunts, and uncles and my grandparents. 40 was old but it wasn't as old as 70 and everybody my age knew it.
