Second to Nun:

Here is my story that aired yesterday on 790 KABC as part of the Lasorda at His Best series presented by Skechers:

Down in Nashville, Tennessee I have a good friend by the name of John Hobbs.  He told me about these nuns who were living in a convent that was 98 years old, and it was condemned.  They had to move out.  I asked him what they were going to do with the nuns and he told me they would put a couple here, a couple there and so on.

“No John,” I said.  “These nuns should all be together.  Let’s build them a new convent.”

We decided to a have big night to raise money to build the convent for the nuns.  I told him that after the season ended I would come down to Nashville.  I had dozens of signed baseballs that we could auction, make a lot of money and build them a convent.

We made a deal with the director of Hee Haw.  We filled the Grand Ole Opry and put on a tremendous show.

I had all the nuns sitting in the front row with me.  When it was over they asked me to get on stage a say a few words.  I took all the nuns with me.  This one little, old nun paid me probably the greatest compliment I ever received.

She put her arms around me and said, “I wish I could have met you before I entered the convent.”
