Nicely put Dan!

In 1976 I was 10 years old and lived in Michigan when Fidrych burst upon the scene. It was a lot of fun.

This makes me so happy. In today's world, with the media events and players being so tightly controlled, it is a wonderful thing to see pure joy from players and fans. This is why we all love baseball. Thanks for sharing this great moment in American history.
