SOME VINTAGE VIN SCULLY, THE LYRICAL POET OF BASEBALL
KINDRED BLUE RECENT BLOGS
WHAT ARE THE ODDS?
One family. Three sons. Did I say from a farm in North Carolina? Two of the boys are major league ball players, and not just for a few moments. They are not flukes to be darn sure. Corey Seager was Rookie of the Year. Kyle Seager is in his 9th season, and so far has...

NOW THIS IS A DODGER FAN!
I want to say to the little boy in the image above -- it's almost here. In the meantime.... A life well lived by this gentleman! The little boy who becomes the man who becomes an icon.
I an so sorry for your loss Is that really the very best they can do? So sorry for my loss? I am so sorry you are so sorry! The card then goes on to say how much baseball is missed by so many but it's like batting practice, that's what the cards says, batting practice...
