  1. Yes, when it was first published in 1968. I wrote Coover a letter of admiration and he sent back a postcard. Said he played a modest version of Henry's game when he was younger.
  2. Yes, this is the type of context I had in mind. Ask and ye shall receive.
  3. I don't think those three numbers by themselves are enough to define clutch hitting. You need more context. Things like the score and the inning would be factors. Certainly, a solo game-winning home run would be a clutch hit, no?
  4. one thing for certain, a "day off" is not the same thing as an "off day."
  5. Outman living up to his name. Good moniker for a pitcher. Bad one for a hitter, though.
  6. A nice tiddy thread is always enjoyable, but I spell it with two "t"s.
  7. That is a really wonderful and nostalgic piece. Very nice. If you want to use the dice and incorporate the dials too, you could change the 1-1 dice roll to "Spin left dial" and have 12 less common outcomes like Error, Balk, Wild Pitch, Hit by Pitch, etc. and change the 6-6 dice roll to "Deep Fly, spin right dial" and have the outcomes be HR, HR, HR, HR, Triple, Caught on Warning Track. Something like that. You get the idea. Whatever you do, I'm sure you and your son will have a lot of fun. Good times.
  8. Except that it made you post that, so it did just a little :-)
  9. I agree completely that Cabrera made the play and they got him out, and probably 99% of the time the ump gets the call right on plays like that. I've just always wondered how it would've gone down if Guillen had made the play. It just looked to me like it might have been a little easier play that way, but who knows? Maybe Guillen boots it or throws wild.
  10. May be what cost Galarraga his perfect game as much as Jim Joyce.
