Boomer Baseball Fans will Appreciate

“Numbering high among my most cherished sports memories is the night in the Sixties, in New York, when Ted Soltaroff, my writer chum, took me to the Polo Grounds to watch Sandy Koufax pitch a two-hitter. He went nine innings, of course, but those were the days when a starter was expected to go nine, or at least eight, rather than to be hugged by his teammates if he managed six, to be followed on the mound by a succession of multimillionaire holders and closers.”

– Mordecai Richler
