"Baseball? I don’t watch it at all," he says. "I watched a part of the Boston World Series four years ago, and I saw that Johnny Damon with the long hair and beard. I wrote . . . what’s the name of the commissioner? I wrote Mr. Selig a letter and I told him something ought to be done. I’ve written Mr. Selig a number of letters. I have copies in my file. He always responds, but he never says anything."
Just like when he testifies in Washington!
In all seriousness, Werber — who played with Babe Ruth, Jimmie Foxx, Lefty Grove and other greats from the game’s bygone era — has some great stories to tell (apparently Ruth was quite the prankster). A fantastic story, well worth the read.
