61*

It’s a year, a number of years, and a time to reflect that there may actually be some crying in baseball — and some laughs, too.

    I always felt badly for Roger Maris – good 1st name, that. If MICKEY had broken the record, everything would be all right, because he came up through the farm system. But Roger was a transfer from KC. Related: I almost cried when McGwire broke Maris’ record not because it had been eclipsed but because of Mark’s generosity to the Maris family.

    Happy birthday – I’ll still be 61 for another 3+ months…

    Yeah, the A’s in those days were practically a Yankees farm team in their own right. (Charlie Finley would have none of that.)

    Think of it as 16 Celsius.
