The Mizuno Affair

Thursday, April 16th, 2009


I was reminded today of something I haven’t thought of in at least 25 years.  I used to play baseball at Kirby Park, near Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania when I was a kid.  Back then, in my thinner days, I played center field mostly.  I was wasn’t great.  I wasn’t terrible.  But I got great — albeit for a short time.  And not due to my skills, but due to a glove I used.  My regular glove had had it.  The pocket tore right out of it after too many plays and too many loaners.  So I had to borrow a glove as my new one was soaking in glove oil.
