“When I was in Little League, Johnny came to our games and would watch me pitch,” said Salerno, of Port Henry, N.Y. “That was a great thrill. I started collecting because he was so nice to me. He helped me get a lot of stuff and then signed everything for me.”
  • Via Ken Gurnick at, "Dodgers lead NL with 16 GIBBY nominations".
  • Ken also provides some news on Capuano and Mark Ellis, via twitter.  I wouldn't be surprised to see Ellis stay with the Dodgers in a back-up role.  Capuano, on the other hand, is likely to go elsewhere.
  • Nick Diunte at put together a great obituary on Bill Sharman; including nice details and quotes from former Baseball teammates.
  • FYI, here is the schedule for the announcements of the various BBWAA awards; such as MVP, Cy Youngs, etc.

  • This is a clear sign of the lack of respect in our society today.  Via Bob Lemke, "Attempt made to steal (Lou) Gehrig's ashes".  Wha.....?
  • Howard Foxx at Gunaxin Sports has put together a collection of photographs of athletes in their Halloween costumes.
