Guest Columnist

Richie thought the following was important enough to merit the following brief column.  In the interests of peace in the house, may I present "In Baseball News"  (Bear with me; he doesn't ask much.)

"In case you did not notice it yet, perfect is no longer in vogue.  And to prove that point, Don Larson died today, age 90.  "Don who?" you say.  Well in October 1956 everyone  knew of Don Larson.  He pitched a perfect game in the 5th game of the 1956 World Series.  (Richie was 15 then for interested parties.)

He pitched a perfect game for the New York Yankees against the great Brooklyn Dodgers.  Who can forget the picture of Yogi Berra hugging Larson on the mound.  Yep, it was in all of the papers, world-wide.

"What are papers?" you ask?  Shame on you!"
