Down on the Farm: A Protestant in Cooperstown

Email

My first childhood baseball hero Bert Blyleven was enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, N.Y. last Sunday.

I couldn't bring myself to watch or care.

Nothing against Bert. I am still a fan. The man could pitch. And pitch. Deep into every game. He completed sixty shutouts in his twenty-two year career.

Blyleven's curveball, many say, was the best ever thrown.
