42story - my connection to America's Pastime

Discussion created by ti351 on Apr 14, 2013

I grew up a baseball fan. I played Little League, and my dad has umpired as a 2nd job since I was a kid. My uncle recently moved out of the old family home in New York, and I was given some old photos. Included were my 3 favorite photos ever, - all of my grandfather, playing baseball at Brooklyn College in the early in 1930's. He died at an early age, and sadly I never got to meet him. But those photos really make me feel connected to America's Pastime more than ever, and will be cherished forever.
