On the heels of last night’s scintillating baseball action, I received word that something I had written a few weeks ago for the website sportscardfun.com was chosen for their “Sportscard of the Week” award. It’s always an honor to win anything like this, but when it ties together baseball, the Cubs, writing, and some fond memories of the past, I just can’t think of anything better that doesn’t involve my family.
I’ll write more about Jose at a later date. He was a Cuban player who had a long career in the major leagues. But if something I heard once is right, there’s something really special about him when it comes to baseball. I’ll confirm it as I can.
