Ted Williams Cheers A Young Amputee

Ted Williams cheers up a young amputee. That's the name of the story I have posted:

It's a pretty fascinating story (to me, anyhow) -- one that took me years to "crack."

I will be chatting online about it Wednesday, July 13 at 1:00 PM Eastern time.

former Negro Leagues ballplayer "brought back to life"

Here is the remarkable story of former Negro Leagues ballplayer Jim Zapp, who was effectively comatose and thought to be lost to his family. Fortunately, his son James Jr. questioned the medical diagnosis, took him medication, and saw his father “come back to life.”  There is a potential lesson here which may help other families going forward.

See the article at the National Pastime Museum.

The original, full article will still appear sometime in the future in the SABR book on the 1948 Birmingham Black Barons and Homestead Grays, which Rick Bush and I are editing.

There is also a "Baseball Banter" on the National Pastime Museum site at 1:00 PM Eastern time on Tuesday, July 12 where I will have an online conversation with people who wish to join in. If you’re free at that time, please check in.
