1950s Baseball

George Ramos' column (April 5) on the Pacific Coast League of the 1950s is just the way to begin a baseball season at a time when the focus is on dollars, not batting averages.

I followed the same Los Angeles Angels that Ramos did, and I also believe the Dodgers "messed up baseball in Los Angeles." I loved Wrigley Field, and I loved going across town to Gilmore Field, to root against the Stars.

I can't see going to Dodger Stadium to watch the Dodger infield play kick ball, or going down to Anaheim to speculate which young Angel stars will be playing in different cities next year, thanks to their know-nothing management. I will go, however, when Nolan Ryan is pitching for the Texas Rangers and Jim Abbott for the New York Yankees.
