Remembrances: Root-root-root for the home team

Now that baseball season is well under way, a nostalgic Rodak remembers the good old days back in Michigan, when Jim Bunning was one of the Good Guys.

As this picture makes crystal clear, Bunning was real nasty in his playing days, coming at you from the right. That much hasn't changed. But, today the senile old fart is throwing the wrong kind of heat.

Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack, already. Sheeesh!


That picture of Bunning, btw, did not come from Google Images, but from a cache of similar pix, clipped by yours truly from sports mags in the late '50s and early '60s and kept all these years. I have dozens and dozens of them and will share others throughout the baseball season this year.
