    Won't pump up the hometown P-T, where I began in '89, because it's a shell of its former greatness.

    But Long Beach is a great, wonderful city. Good luck to whoever gets the gig.

    This was the Press-Telegram sports department in 1990. Very close department led by a great SE Jim McCormack. We played ball at the YMCA often. In much smaller groups we ran outdoor games at Mayfair Park every Friday morning.
