I’ve been watching the Ken Burns’ Baseball series. Today I have the first disc of The Tenth Inning playing. It brings back so many memories. There was to be a loss of innocence in later years.
The biggest memory for me was the McGwire home run chase. I was working in Houston for a few months. (Moving there with 4 dogs was an adventure, but that’s another story.) The Cardinals came to town to play the Stros. Several of us from work got tickets. We saw him hit (IIRC) his 33rd. It was thrilling.
