Baseball is the only sport that I've ever paid any attention to. I don't watch it on television but have been to quite a few Major League games to watch the game at the park. Although I grew up in Michigan, I was in the southern part of the Upper Peninsula so we had much more in common with Wisconsin than we did with the Lower Peninsula. Several other states were closer to us than the Lower Peninsula. My cousin, Robert, was a Detroit Tigers fan, but he's the only Tiger fan that I knew. My oldest brother brought me to Milwaukee Braves games often in 1957 and 1958, when I was six and seven, and I can usually still name the starting lineup from those years, and many of the other players, as well. He was living near Oshkosh at the time, which was a little more than halfway to Milwaukee. The Milwaukee Braves were the only team that I considered a favorite team, but I did go to a lot of other Major League games. I've never been to a Tigers' game. I've never been to Detroit. When I moved to California, the Angels were in Anaheim and, since they weren't any good, it was often possible to get a good seat at game time. While I was attending the Anaheim Grace Brethren Church, the church bought a block of tickets so I went to a lot of Angels games. I wasn't exactly rooting for them. It didn't seem like anyone was. Reggie Jackson was playing for the Angels at the time. On the downside of his career, he wasn't playing very well. In fact, he was the only Major League ballplayer who I have ever seen field as badly as I did when I was in Little League. He might be standing there waiting on a high fly, and it would land in front of him or just over his head. When he was at-bat, he was still a power hitter, so he did hit some home runs. But usually, he struck out. In fact, at Angels' games, the traditional song that they would sing before the game ended like this... And it's one, two, three, REGGIE'S OUT, that's the whole ball game. Anyhow, it was the Major Leagues so the games were fun. I just wasn't rooting for anyone in particular. I preferred the National League to the American League, so I went to quite a few Dodger's games, too. But that was further away from me - I could walk to Angel Stadium - and I always felt like I was going to get mugged outside of Dodger Stadium. It did not have the appearance of a good neighborhood.
