That's beautifully heartfelt memorial tribute Dan. I've always been a big fan of big Don myself.


Fantastic! Thanks for writing this Dan!


Dan -

This brought a tear to my eye. A very moving tribute.

I certainly hope your friend gets good news.




Great write up on an interesting player in baseball history. I enjoyed reading it.

Tannana, Carew, and Baylor were the best Angels, and all holy. Thanks for remembering him Dan, and I'm glad "Big Hair" touched him. It touched me too.
