I'm convinced that every boy, in his heart, would rather steal second base than an automobile.

Conversations with John D'Acquisto: Part I

Sideburns and Muttonchops: '70s Style
A fair bit has been written about the “Mustache Era” during the 1970s. It was truly the rock-n-roll era for baseball. Instead of simply echoing many of the tales already told very well—for example, see Shawn Anderson’s stories at www.hallofverygood.com and Dan Epstein’s book Big Hair and Plastic Grass: A Funky Ride Through Baseball and America in the Swinging '70s—what I wish to do here is to share some imagery of classic sideburns of ballplayers from the classic Mustache Era.

Although short, he possessed a rugged build and was more than capable at hitting the long ball. He brought to the lineup very good speed and an uncanny ability to draw the base on balls. Over his career Wynn was a three-time all-star, and he hit 291 homeruns and stole 225 bases. He also managed to lead the league in walks twice.

Dick Drago: Gritty Old School Hurler
While spending some time down in Florida recently, I had the pleasure of meeting up with Dick Drago, the former major league pitcher for 13 seasons. Of course, Dick Drago was a key member of the classic 1975 and 1978 Red Sox ballclubs.  Read more . . .
