How many of these does the paper have canned and ready to go? I think Dave Anderson and George Vescey can just bring them up with a macro that was put into their computers.
And from this I can segue into a plug for a talk that a coworker and I will be giving on baseball literature and baseball history at the Central Libary of the Los Angeles Public Library on Thursday, April 5 at 12:15 pm. If you're in Downtown L.A., swing on by and feel free to heckle. Perhaps you can try to frighten me by wearing a Frank Robinson mask. Not that I think anyone makes Frank Robinson masks.
I'll be talking about baseball books, highlighting what I consider to be some of the best ones in my opinion. My coworker, Glen Creason of the History Department, will be having a talk about historic Los Angeles baseball stadiums. I believe I am designated to act all weepy over the demise of Gilmore Field.
