You mean "Jackie Robinson Again Again".

Seriously, is nobody in charge of this board?

I'm guessing multiple people are able to approve posts, and they don't always know what's been posted. At least the What If? post was several months ago before recently being reposted.

This is good enough to merit re-posting.

#1 hadn't posted before I posted my comment. Don't blame me for your own incompetence.

Well, I missed it the first time, so I'm glad to see it. Roger Angell is grand.
