I attended my first ballgame at Fenway on my eighth birthday. Since my father hadn’t been to the park since he was a little kid, we left for the park extremely early. With a lot of time to kill we sat outside the park where we met two teenage girls who regularly hung out to get autographs. We were very lucky. As each person walked by the girls would tell us if the guy was a player. One of the first players to walk by (and yes players would just walk up to the park in those days) was Bill Lee with Sparky Lyle. Although we got a lot of autographs that day, Bill and Sparky were the nicest players to us which, as you can tell, I never forgot.
Here are the autographs:
Brian was wrong about a lot of stuff including, in later years, stabbing someone in a bar fight, which landed him in prison.
I won’t wait for the Blu-ray on this movie.

I saw the film on Friday, and was frankly surprised by just how much baseball there was in it—and how well Linklater nails the dynamics of a competitive, amateur ball team. A feature: there is no big game, no pressure pitch, no dramatic home run. Not his best movie by any stretch (and more aggressively male than Dazed & Confused), but it was worth my twelve bucks.

Somehow the writer didn’t get around to bashing Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in his review.
