A heartfelt tribute, Dan. I came here today just to read this, knowing you would have something on Gamble. Thank you for sharing everything here.

Beautifully written article about a man who obviously had a positive impact on your enjoyment of baseball and your life.

Awesome words, Dan, moving and funny and brings back so many great memories. I'll be saying a kaddish for Oscar on Saturday morning.
