Big fan of ''Field of Dreams''?

Mark Grace is probably headed to prison for at least a couple of years for this kind of stunt.
Pudge better call a cab next time.

Spent a good amount of time just jawing with my grandpa while watching the game like any normal Dad. My brother was one of those true "student of the game" type players who loved watching MLB games to pick up how to play the game.

Pudge commented on my brother, who was playing catcher, tossing his mask on a pop out and throwing the ball over to 3rd after my grandpa had told Fisk about how my brother studied how to play the game.

"Wonder where he picked that up?" Pudge joked.

I hope that Fisk can get the help he needs. Man might be a jerk at times, but I certainly don't want to wake up one morning to see the headline:

"Sox Hall of Famer Fisk in Drunk Driving Accident."

Grace will do 4 months at some sort of tent city place because its mandatory for his charge. He won't do any other time unless they are trying to make an example out of him.

Confused by the bolded comment. Fisk was released/retired in 1993. His son was 21 years old at the time, so certainly wouldn't be playing in any little league baseball game.

I think it's interesting, he's a kind of a mixed bag. Sometimes a good guy, sometimes a jagbag. Hopefully when you meet him, you get the good guy, not the jagbag but you never know...

Actually, I was wrong on the timing. He still was playing for the Sox at that time. I met him post retirement a few times. Sorry on the confusion there. His kid was in little league, so this would of been early/mid 80's.

+1, Spivack. I've seen too many lives ended or tragically altered to have any patience with this crap.

Yea one should not be ordering up a liter of Smirnoff and driving. I was in New Lenox for a seminar a number of yrs back and recall mentioning his name to someone. They told me that he lived sorta in the country, had a long lane and pretty much kept to himself. But that he would make a scene at some ballgames when he tried second guessing his kids manager. Her comment to me was "Hes not a nice man" FWIW

Hope he is going to be alright and he finds the help he needs
