    • Re: the breaking in of a glove with shaving cream. I’ve definitely heard of it. I’ve read in more than one place that Brooks did it and so did Ozzie Smith.  Brooks: http://www.danielleflood.com/id36.html “Yankee pitcher Ron Davis uses shaving cream on his, any kind he can find in the clubhouse. He just sprays the foam on, and lets it soak in, then repeats the process every now and then. "It makes the leather darker, softer, smooooth," he says as he runs his fingers over his glove.Where did he ever get such an idea? "I saw Brooks Robinson do it."   Ozzie (and a tidbit about Brooks that I *didn’t* know) https://www.si.com/vault/2003/03/17/339796/for-love-of-leather-finally-the-baseball-glove-gets-the-recognition-it-deserves “Brooks Robinson kept his glove fingers firm with tongue  depressors; Ozzie Smith broke his in with shaving cream.”
    • 125 balls hit in the regular season fit that criteria.
    • I was just about to post that, Frobby. Here's a follow-up article from the very next day with more interesting tidbits. It seems the Mets knew he lied about his age, but didn't investigate and just assumed what his real age was. Doesn't seem like they mentioned this to the Orioles at all. Lots of blunders surrounding Lesli Brea, it seems.
    • God I hate the Yankees.    Then again, I hate the Pirates due to 1971 and 1979.  If I hear "We are family" on the radio, I quickly change the channel.  Thankfully, that horrible song doesn't get played much anymore.   
    • Geez, Taber has not aged well.  Looks terrible.
