Dodger/Giant Rivalry in the Valley

by Larry Ham

If there's one thing baseball has over the other major sports, it’s tradition. Yeah, football, basketball and hockey all have traditions, but they’re not as..... well, traditional as baseball. Opening day has red white and blue bunting hanging from the railings at every stadium. Fans of every team have genuine hope in April that this will be the year their team wins it all.

How Baseball Has Changed

by Larry Ham

Harmon Killebrew died a couple of weeks ago, and it got me thinking about how much baseball has changed in the last four decades. For those of you too young to remember, Harmon Killebrew was an outstanding hitter for the Washington nationals and Minnesota Twins in the fifties and sixties. He was known for a powerful home run swing, and it is assumed by most experts that it is his image that adorns the official logo of Major League Baseball. But he was much more than a prodigious home run hitter. He was also a true gentleman who treated teammates, the media, and the fans with great respect and kindness.
