I bought this book for one reason… To impress a girl.

I ended up dating her for almost 6 years. She broke my heart, and I dwelled, drank, and dwaddled my years away.

I have held on to it b/c of the memory of her amazement when I gave her All Leiter’s address.

Today, you can find this stuff with ease. Damn internet. 

He was her favorite player. I don’t know, maybe still. I would take her in a date to Shea Stadium to see him pitch. Opening Day. I didn’t tell her what until we were in a hotel in New Jersey the night before. Another great, but very sad (now) memory.

So, I chuck this into the garbage as my buddy Mike D. cringes…
