Celebrating Frank Robinson

The word has come through that Frank Robinson has died, and some of the love that so many of us share for the game of baseball went with him.
When I was a youngster living in the suburbs of Cleveland, Ohio, a friend and I went into Cleveland on a fan bus to see Robinson play in an exhibition game against the Cleveland Indians, they being in the American League and Cincinnati, Robinson’s team, being in the National League: the two would not meet in the regular season there being no inter-league play at the time.

Pennant hunting

When our distant ancestors were skulking about in caves, I suspect there were only two seasons: hunting season and hungry season. When the snow was piled up against the cave opening and when every animal with a reasonable survival instinct had gone into hibernation, I expect that our cave dwelling fore-fathers and mothers huddled around whatever fire they could muster and told stories about the warm days when sustenance was plentiful, and the clan could sit outside with full bellies, playing games with the young ones.
