I will never forget my trip to Bill Zuber's Restaurant many years ago in Homestead, IA. The food and the baseball memorabilia were both a real treat to experience. Bill Zuber had great talent, but was never encouraged to persue his ability to pitch a baseball. One day a baseball scout asked him to throw an onion over the roof of a nearby barn and a famous legend was born. This event made Bill Zuber a Yankee pitcher and among other baseball clubs in his famous career. Bill was just an ordinary, honest and good natured man from Iowa. Bill overcame all the odds and got ahead despite the church elders not encouraging his talent.
