12th Anniversary

 

Tommy and Ted Williams.JPGTwelve years ago today I received a call in the press box at Hollman Stadium, which is at Dodgertown in Vero Beach, FL.

It was from my good friend Ted Williams.

I will never forget what he said, as he told me, “I thought I was the only guy in the Hall of Fame that loved you but I guess everybody else does.”

“Congratulations, you are going to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.”

It was a dream come true, and to hear it from one of baseball’s immortals was even more meaningful.

BRING THE RING TO L.A. IN 2009!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Hall of Fame is still a wonderful place, but it looks like a lot great young players today are putting up their own road blocks.
The Dodgers are coming to Citi Field this year at the wrong time, I’m going to have to miss 3 consecutive nights of the feast.

Great story!
