I've been really sick the past few days. I was sick enough today where I excused myself from work an hour early, came home and laid down for a nap. It appears that I am going to be sidelined with "Flu-like Symptoms", much like some of the Orioles have been dealing with lately. I woke up from my nap to find one of my padded mailers on my dresser and inside was this ball.
My roommate on road trip was Pete Appleton. I worked out a lot with Buddy Lewis, was close with pitcher Dutch Leonard. I played against Mickey Vernon in the Minors. "Uncle Sammy" got me for almost 5 years - March 3, 1941 to November 1945. I tried baseball in 1946 - didn't feel right - I quit. Peace be with you!!
The short response sure was welcome! Palagyi is my 53rd TTM success. I mailed to him on April 13, 2012 and got my ball back today, May 1, 2012, making him an 18-day TAT.
Now, I think I'll go lay back down.
