Baseball Heroes

We’ve been lucky in some of the baseball games we’ve been to:

  • In 2007, we went to a game in Milwaukee at which Hank Aaron was being honored, so we got to see The Home Run King speak.
  • In 2009, we went to a game at Yankee Stadium at which Mariano Rivera and Derek Jeter were being honored, so we got to see Reggie Jackson, Yogi Berra, Dave Winfield, and other greats give them awards.
  • Today, we went to a game at Bush Stadium at which Stan Musial was being honored, so we got to see him and Red Shoendienst (not to mention seeing Albert Pujols play again).

After the ceremony for Stan, I said to Douglas “You’ve been really lucky – you’ve gotten to see Hank Aaron, Reggie Jackson, Yogi Berra, and Stan Musial, and you don’t even know who they are.”

And his response?

“And Fredbird!!”

Gee. How could I have forgotten Fredbird?
