Hi…this is Barbara. Just got a chance to review the letters….seems to me I recognize plenty of the information and the players. I surely remember the days of the 50’s and the days of betting on games. Bouncer and I bought our first new car with stickball winnings one summer (1966). Bennie, I hope to make the 2001 Old Timers game in Miami. Jay…the winner of the world series is really “up for grabs” since it was not played out as it should have been. Originally the fourth day of the series was to be used for “rained out” games..but that was changed (along with many other “rules”)so it did not happen. Sadly, that added to putting a damper on the series.Both the Youngbloods and the Repo Men were playing great ball.
