Another pirate that I remember, though far from legendary, was a catcher named Smoky Burgess. Being a former catcher myself, I tend to gravitate to others who played the same position.
Randy, I was a pitcher in the Pony League. Since you were a catcher, we should have a catch some day. I can bring the baseball and the mitts, including a catcher's mitt.
I heard that a lot of great games are being played in a place called Iowa. Ya wanna meet me in Iowa? If not, maybe we can meet in a place called York, Pennsylvania. LOL, Arnold
It would be great to meet you in person. York in the Spring would be a good time. I was an intercollegiate varsity catcherthat doubled on first base in the first two years of undergraduate study. Unfortunately, my over-abused, 69 year-old body will not allow me to play baseball anymore. Otherwise, I would love to have a catch with you. I still have all of my gloves, my catcher's mitt, first baseman's mitt and fielder's glove. After being his little league baseball manager when my only son was 5 - 10 years old and I was in my early 50's, I had to reduce my baseball activity due my deteriorating back and legs. Now I am and avid baseball spectator and life-long railroad junky.
