    I saw that you mentioned Bobby Webber in your note. He pitched to me in senior teenage league the summer of 1963. The stadium was at the far end of Hogan Park where the Midland Indians played the semipro games. Bobby was the guy from LHS and I had heard of him from the MHS players. Anyway Red Moore was announcing the game and I was 2 for 2 and up for the 3rd time. Well Red (John Moore’s Dad) gave me the best introduction ever and I hit a home run over the left field fence. Red went ape on the microphone. But the umpire called it a foul ball. Bobby walked me and I never played baseball again. The next summer I was in the USN in Great Lakes Illinois finishing boot camp and starting Corps School on my way to becoming a Navy Corpsman with the Marines. But I remember Bobby and he as a fastball pitcher. I just wish someone could find him for a story. Starman
