He's Feeling Good About Baseball Again

Just when you think the grand ol' game is heading to the dogs, an article about the likes of Chuck Essegian and Little Red warms my heart like the spring sun warms the grass at Vero Beach.

Can we send a copy to every current major league ballplayer to remind them of what it takes to be a big leaguer? There's a little bit of Little Red in all of us, no matter how old we are. Thanks, Mr. Essegian.
