About Spahn; he gave up a homerun to Luke Appling in an old timers game and Luke was 75 at the time. Don't forget Lefty Grove. Consider Lefty's ERA in a time when entire teams batted above .300. And didn't Hollywood make a film about Grover Cleveland Alexander featuring his strikeout of 'Push em up' Tony. Conservatives like baseball because: "you play on a 'field' in a 'park', and you come 'home' rather than 'score' etc. (with apologies to the late George Carlin).
