No, not that Roger & Andy…..
I just came across a great story from seven years ago – about Roger Maris and Andy Strasberg (who was a fan). If you’ve never heard the tale, it’s worth checking out.
I know someone, a fan, who has developed a similar relationship with a current Yankees great. So, it’s possible that something like this can still happen today.
The key, to me, is that the ballplayer needs to be down-to-earth and classy. In the case of my friend today, I know the player is a good guy.
Sounds like Maris was a good guy too – unlike what some may have thought to be otherwise.
