@clemente3000, I don't know you very well. But can I assume clemente is for Roberto? and the 3000 is for hits? So can I assume you are from Pittsburgh? 

So happens Roberto is my second favorite non Cardinal behind Reggie Jackson.

By my count, this makes December 22 the darkest day of the year, that day halfway between the end of the World Series and the opening of Spring Training

By my estimation yesterday was the darkest day of the year since that was the day the stinkin' Dodgers won the World Series.  I think @JudgeBrown would agree.

Speaking of the stinkin' Dodgers, they had a player test positive for COVID 19 and was pulled from the lineup for game 6.  I am guessing this was to keep him away from the team and keep the other team members from getting the virus.  But he was on the field after they won with his teammates and didn't have a mask.  I hope the Dodgers get a fine for it

They should forfeit the trophy.  :-)

Yes, my user name pays homage to The Great One.  He was simply my favorite baseball player from the time I started reading box scores in preschool.  I was 10 when he died.  My kids grew up learning about Clemente much like they grew up listening to Bruce - they were both just always there.  But no, I've never lived in Pittsburgh.  I actually lived in Kansas City from 1968 - 1974, so the first team I loved was the Royals (thus my interest in 1985 :P).  I also grew up a Chiefs fan and attended Super Bowl IV (where Carol Channing most definitely DID NOT perform at halftime, contrary to popular belief).

In the movie Grand Canyon, Kevin Kline's character named his son Roberto in honor of Clemente.

Wait...are you Kevin Kline?  :-)

Kevin Kline is from St. Louis not Kansas City!

Miami Marlins hire Kim Ng as general manager, the first female GM in MLB.

For some reason wasn't able to post the whole story I was reading. But some say biggest day in baseball since Jackie Robinson. Well done Mr. Jeter.
