Comments –

 Frank Howard – It's one of those oddities of MLB - and therefore APBA - that every now and then a quite average, or even less than average, pitcher hurls a no-hitter.  So it was tonight in Silver Spring, as the rookie Nate Robertson (?) spun a near-perfect game as the Senators beat the visiting Pennsylvania Keystones 6-0.  The only blemish on Robertson's game was the one walk he allowed - he struck out 10 - to the opposing pitcher Greg Maddux.

And the hell of it all?  Robertson's a Grade 3W!  At least in TCBA-T, it doesn't get any worse than a 3W.  And yet there was Robertson, Sandy Koufax or Bob Gibson for a night, mowing down the Keystones and etching himself into Silver Spring club history.

Bob Braun – My father passed on in March of 2004. He was 80 years young at the time, but suffered from seven years of depression following my mother’s death. He was stricken suddenly by pneumonia and left this life a few days later.

Family of Larry Lundeen - This (message) is being sent along to all of you under very tragic circumstances. We, being the family of Larry Lundeen, are all saddened to inform you that Larry has passed away suddenly. He has had a heart condition since having open heart surgery 12 years ago.

On January 19th he passed away in his sleep. We know in our hearts how much he loved playing these games over the years and he will be greatly missed by all. His wishes were not to have a funeral but a gathering of friends in his home to celebrate his life. If any wish to pay respects to the family, Larry's wishes were to not have flowers sent but to have donations made to the charity of your choice in his name….We would like to thank you all for the joy that you brought to his life through this game.

TCBA Encyclopedia - Holy alliance, Batman!! The TCBA Encyclopedia just caught fire! Even the Moses Blue Ink turned Red! See...

 

No sooner did the Editors enter Bill Gittins into the TCBA scripture then a plague of locust-like information began spewing forth from that pillar of salt of a printer we use!

 

As most of the TCBA faithful are aware, each TCBA team is assigned a Franchise number which allows us to trace the history and development of every single team from the earliest day forward to the present moment.  It's normally routine stuff. Recently Gerry Hobbs joined Gold and Yesterday with his Sacramento Solons as part of the Franchise #12 heritage.  It may have been no mere coincidence that his Morgantown team is also a Franchise #12 standard bearer.  A complete connection! Simply by chance, you ask? Well, you Doubting Thomas's, you may want to mull this one over before you deny.

 

Bill Gettins, a minister by profession we are told, joins us as the Today representative of Franchise#14 (Philadelphia.) A minister. The other active Gold/Yesterday Franchise #14 team? Get out your hymn books and turn to page 181 and sing Go Tell It on the Mountain, because standing at the other end of the building is Siouxland’s manager Jeff Sajdak, another man of the cloth! Two preachers, two teams, same franchise. Who wants to suggest a coincidence? I dare you......

 

You know what? I don't want to be around when these two teams face each other. The fallout would be Hell.... literally!

 

Great to have you on board, Bill.

 

(Did you guys think I'd take a chance on saying anything else!!!?!??!)
