We Are a Mobile Society, So In What State Were You Born?

It has been a crazy week for yours truly, but in the midst of it all I did manage to run into some new people whom I had never met before. They were from Illinois, but not from this area.

DiMaggio’s Consecutive Hitting Streak Ended 75 Years Ago Tomorrow

The year was 1941.  Americans were preoccupied with World War Two going on in Europe.  Nerves were on edge and Americans needed something or someone to do something positive.  That someone turned out to be Joe DiMaggio of the New York Yankees.

Congratulations goes out to Ken Griffey Junior and Mike Piazza. Both were named last week to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York.
