Happy Father's Day : June 21.
Someone else's Dad but the photo rekindles the memories. Business and
worries were not on his agenda for the day. It was Dad's day (or son's day) going to the
ballpark to root for our team. Nothing else on our minds but the crack of the bat,
the crowd cheering on the home team. Throw in a bag of popcorn, coke, pretzel and
a hotdog to top it off. I'll never forget those days. That's some 50 years ago but
it's fresh on my memory as if it were yesterday. Thanks for the memories. Happy

Equipped with Script.
When one thinks of the quintessential baseball uniform, it is often adorned with a team or city name angled across the shirt front in script lettering. The first big league club to use this design was the 1914 Federal League Buffalo Blues (also known as the Buffeds). It was not until 1930 that the script lettering was reintroduced into big league baseball. In that year, the Detroit Tigers adopted the style that has since been embraced by nearly every major league club at some time during its history. The earliest known use of script lettering on any professional team uniform is 1902, when the style was used by both Oakland and San Francisco of the California League.
