Nice Steve,

I was sitting in a design office in Tokyo where I was working in 1968 listening
to the game on the Radio. I was the hero of the day when my co-workers
found out Detroit was my home-town.:smile: They really like their baseball over there.:cool:

Regards,

I wasn't here in '68 so remind me. Wasn't it Mickey that was the 'portly' one, not Denny?:biggrin:

They must eat well in prison :wink:

Uh yeah, Mickey was always "chunky" now Denny looks like a "Denny's" in size, and in person he's huge.
