Looking out for family

Great to see that the Celtics alums pulled together to help out a teammate.  Which reminds me.  If you haven't read Teammates by David Halberstam and you really want to get ready for Grapefruit League action find the book asap.  You won't be able to put it down.

True Grit

Nice to see one of the most talented and dedicated players to ever wear a Boston uniform return to New England as the manager of the Brockton Rox.  Here's a trivia question:

Who was the left fielder for the LA Dodgers when Hank Aaron broke Babe Ruth's career home run record? 

Answer:  Who was NOT the left fielder!  The pitcher was Al Downing and the left fielder for the Dodgers was Bill Buckner!
