I remember going to Spring Training games in St Pete growing up and getting autographs from players who didn't take steroids just amphetamines.

Staying with the Baseball theme I can remember when teams in Pittsburgh, Oakland, Baltimore, Cincinnati and Kansas City were the dominant teams in the Major Leagues.

Also, players stayed with teams for their entire careers -- or almost.

Al Kaline = Tigers
Rocky Colavito = Indians
Brooks Robinson = Orioles
Sandy Koufax = Dodgers
Mickey Mantle = Yankees
Ted Williams = Red Sox
Johnny Bench = Red Legs (OK, I am REALLY old-school)

Nowadays, you need a program on a monthly basis to figure out who is where. It ain't the same, and it ain't better.

Yes, indeed. There is a record which will never be approached -- even remotely -- much less broken.

2632 games in a row. anyone who watched game 2131, when he broke Lou Gehrig's record, will never forget it.

My mom still has a life-size (6'4") cardboard cutout of Cal in her basement.

Spring Training was when they'd show up out of shape and bloated, most players had a second job after the season was over, they didn't make so much.
