Fergie will be in town… and I won’t be

Dang! Dang! Dang!

Just read in the paper that Fergie Jenkins will be in town at the grand opening of the Home Depot signing autographs. Unfortunately, I will be out of town this weekend.

I learned to be a baseball fan by watching the Cubs of that era. I bet I could list their starters by memory. Let me try:

C: Randy Hundley
1B: Ernie Banks (saw him hit a grand slam once, also went to see him inducted into the Hall of Fame)
2B: Glenn Beckert
SS: Don Kessinger
3B: Ron Santo (I know a couple guys who have met him in person. They say he is the nicest guy)
OF: Billy Williams
OF: Jim Hickman
OF: Joe Pepitone

UT: Paul Popovich

SP: Fergie Jenkins
SP: Bill Hands
SP: Milt Pappas
Who am I missing???

Anyway, not bad considering I was what, 6 or 7 at the time?

Maybe I’ll send my wife to get an autograph :)
