Had a great time at the Baseball Reliquary event last Saturday.  I purchased the book “Strrr-ike!! Emmett Ashford, Major League Umpire” by Adrienne Cherie Ashford, daughter of Emmett.   I checked out two  books from the library, one on the Negro League and the other is  “A Strong Right Arm”  the story of Mamie “Peanut” Johnson.” 
 
I also won another book.  “Bat Boy: My True Life Adventures Coming of Age with the New York Yankees by Matthew McGough.  Matthew was in the audience so he signed my book.  He was there with his two beautiful young kids.  Even though I have the book I will attend the Baseball Reliquary when he will be speaking about his book and having a book signing.   My friend Abby who is a huge Yankee fan, said is a fun read.   Thank you Abby for the two Dodger books you have sent me!   Let me know if there is anything I can send your way.  
 
I plan on getting the Gaylord Perry book too.  So many books to read, so little time.  I plan on reading on my way to Camelback Ranch.

Sounds like a fun trip, although, if your not driving, I’d be sleeping on the way there instead on reading. ;)

You know Russel, you got a good point there. I need my sleep.

I’m sure Camelback is MUCH quieter without Mr. Guillen’s mouth running like crazy. Haha.

Jeff, LOL :-) did not think about that. but I am looking forward to seeing Robin Ventura. If I could only find my ticket from that game that he pitch the 9th in Dodger blue against the Angels.
