For any of you that have gotten a chance to chat with Minnie
on a casual basis, I must say, its very interesting and heartwarming. I saw Minnie at a bar last nite, chatting with
people and I first couldnt believe that was him, but it sure was.
A friend of mine asked him some corny questions, like "what do
you guys talk about when you go to the pitchers mound....or does a ball hurt when you get hit with it". Minnie had a good
old time explaining things and I could tell he misses baseball.
Was pretty cool to watch him tell a story about how he'd gotten
a hit in a game against the Yanks, and the next time up, his teammates telling him he was going to get Plunked. And he knew it too....but he said he had to suck it up, and take it. He said when he got hit, he made sure to smile at the pitcher, to let
him know it didnt hurt. He showed us his stance and right where he'd expect to get plunked and in his broken english ,
exclaim "that hurt man". great story by minnie....

I've also had the pleasure of listening to Minnie at a bar, namely Slugger's across the street from that other ballpark. He's awesome, very gracious and cool.

Sluggers is where I saw him. I laughed, and told him im a big
sox fan, as evidenced by my sox Tshirt. Was cool because
there were a few other sox fans in there too....right in the shadow of the Shrine! Blasphemy!
