    A little long but an enjoyable read. I really enjoyed the shots at Joe Morgan

    That's pretty tremendous. I bet Bill Simmons is pissed he didn't think of it first for Grantland. Of course, an oral history of the 1952 Hickory Huskers is probably in the works ...

    I was impressed to see that the passage lifted from The Sporting News contained grammatical errors. Excellent attention to real-life detail!

    "Major League" holds up in a lot of ways, but the fact that it was plausible for everyone involved to think Miami would be some sort of baseball Songbird proves how naive we all were in those days.

    That was also right around the time the White Sox and Giants were making serious noise about moving to St. Pete. Talk about naiveity.

    It's disconcerting that the first comment, the person hadn't seen Major League. How can you like baseball and not have seen Major League???
