Peter Gammons Newsbeat
Friday, December 02, 2016
Much to my dismay, I’ve never met Peter. That’s saying a lot because I’m not particularly moved when I meet famous people. As a matter of fact, the only people I’ve genuinely been excited to meet have been Bill James and Pete Palmer. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve enjoyed meeting a bunch of other people but only those two had me pretty much speechless when I met them.
I’ve been following, reading, and learning about baseball from Peter for over thirty years. What has always struck me is, not just his knowledge, but how genuinely nice a guy he is. I guess that’s one of the reasons why I’ve always wanted to meet him; it’s an expectation that he is who he seems to be… a very nice gentleman. You can’t say that about too many heroes.
