He was surprisingly gracious and signed a dinner napkin for me. I can't believe my folks did that, but I guess he expected it when he dined out in the open there.

    I've heard stories, though.
    Peter Hammond has a story about being in Boston with his mom and stopping to eat lunch in a hotel. Roger maris was there eating by himself and peter said his mom told him to go ask for an auto. Peter writes he declined because he didnít want to interrupt maris. He continued that after roger was done, he got up and walked past Peter and his mom and stopped, asking why when he saw them looking and talking they didnít approach him. Peter responded that he wanted to give maris his privacy.

    Maris noodled and pulled out a piece of paper and signed his autograph for Peter, gave it to him and thanked him.

    One of those stories you hope was true.

    I think Roger Maris was probably a pretty nice guy. I got to meet him once in Fargo, shortly before he died, while I was in town for a wedding. A pretty quiet guy, he struck me as being shy. He was kind enough to autograph a baseball for me.

    The West Acres Mall in Fargo has a nice little museum dedicated to Roger that is worth a stop should you ever find yourself in Fargo. I haven't been there for years, but I know they have quite a few of the 61 home run balls from 1961 and a short little movie that they play regarding his career. It used to be free, but as I said, I haven't stopped by for many years so I don't know if that's still true.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    The Denver Post ran a feature about opening day at the new and improved Coors Field...and led off with a full-page picture of Citizens Bank Park.

    The Denver Post is kind of a joke. I mean, any newspaper that employs Mike Chambers cannot be taken seriously.

    Interesting play in Orioles-Yankees.

    Sanchez is on second, Stanton on third. Stanton gets caught in rundown, Sanchez advances to third in the mean time. Stanton then runs back, touches third, then runs into left field, where he is tagged out. Umpires rule only Stanton out. Buck Showalter comes out saying that Sanchez should also be out as he technically passed Stanton when he ran past third. Umpires stick with just the one out. Yankees announcer then reads a case play from the rule book that is the exact situation that just happened, with the interpretation being that it should have been a double play.

    Looks like the Orioles are now protesting, but they got an out the next play and did not have any runs scored, so I don't see how they would have an argument that it affected the game if they do end up losing.

    Maybe its time to have the Ohtani talk. He is raking on this homestand. A HR in 3 consecutive games, including off Kluber.
