I was at this game in 1982 and I will never forget it.

Dan Kennedy a professor at Northeastern University in Boston writes about it better than I could.

The picture says it all

That's a great story. I really wish they'd found that kid today. He should get invited to the induction ceremony.

Always thought Jim was a straight up guy since the '70s!

I actually remember when this happened. They were playing the White Sox, and I was listening to the game with my dad while we cleaned out the garage on a saturday afternoon. I think it was Lorne Brown who mentioned what had just happened. I also remember seeing that picture the next morning in the paper.

Great Job, Jim!
