I was ten.
And . . . I remember it like yesterday.
What a memorable year it was for baseball.
I too am a Vietnam vet.
I take it . . . by your responses . . . that you live somewhere in Pennsylvania.
I lived in Doylestown for many years . . .
And . . . believe it or not . . . I can actually name the starting lineup for the 1960 Pirate team..
My favorite team of all time.
Oh . . . and by the way . . . the only player I saw that actually had a stronger arm than Roberto Clemente was Rocky Colavito.
Thank you for your correction on my article. I was a little embarrassed to be honest. I am usually very good at double-checking things like that, and hate when writers screw it up. I will be more diligent in checking my work in the future. Take care.
