Tuesday’s video: Trump is correct about the destruction of statues





Maybe they didn’t tear down enough statues in Chicago

October tops Chicago violence records | The Crusader Newspaper Group
It was another bloody weekend in Chicago and other cities.  As always, Chicago leads the way, as we see in this local report:  
Chicago recorded at least 11 killed and 67 wounded during an outbreak of violence, according to Fox 32. The deaths included a 3-year-old and a 13-year-old girl. The teenage girl was home Saturday night when she was struck in the neck from the shot fired from outside. She was pronounced dead at Stroger Hospital.
CBS Chicago reported that eight of those shot were children and teens, four of them died.  The 3-year old was with his stepfather at about 6:30 p.m. on Saturday when he was struck in the back. Witnesses told the station that the gunfire came from a blue Honda.
“Tears are a natural reaction to these tragic stories of violence. But we need to do more than just cry,” Chicago Police Supt. David Brown said. “Let’s keep violent offenders in jail longer, and let’s revamp the home monitoring system. It’s not working.”
Not working at all!   
By the way, wonder if any of the “shooters” were wearing masks to prevent spreading the virus?  They were obviously not maintaining a proper distance.
We saw similar crime reports from other cities.  
What do these cities have in common?  They are bringing down statues, renaming schools, talking about defunding the police, and run by Democrats.

We love the movie: "The Pride of the Yankees"!


In a couple of weeks, we will recall another anniversary of Lou Gehrig's 1939 farewell speech.

We also love watching "Pride of the Yankees", the greatest baseball movie ever. (Maybe "Field of Dreams" is second!)

We love baseball history.  We love Lou Gehrig's life, and specially the courageous way that he fought adversity.





June 23, 1971: What a day for Rick Wise of the Phillies

On this day in 1971, Rick Wise had one spectacular day:  He pitched a no-hitter and hit 2 HR.     No other pitcher had done before or since!  

Rick's amazing day made him one of the most popular Phillies of all time.

Rick Wise broke with the Phillies at 18 in 1964.    Overall, he pitched until 1982.  

His career numbers were pretty good:   188-181 with a very respectable 3.69 ERA.     His numbers have to be put in the context that he pitched for bad teams in Philadelphia.

In 1975, Rick Wise was traded to Boston and won 19 games for the 1975 Boston Red Sox who lost to the Reds in seven games.   

Rick was a workhorse completing 138 games.

We remember Rafael “Felo” Ramirez, 1923-2017

The great Rafael "Felo" Ramirez was born on this day in 1923 in Bayamo, Cuba, and died in 2017.   

Felo brought his conversationalist style to calling a game that he loved as much as anyone.


My parents grew up listening to Felo and baseball games on the radio in Cuba. 


I connected with Felo in the 1980’s during my time in Mexico City.  Starting in April, and all the way to the World Series, there was Felo Ramirez on the radio broadcasting major league baseball games to Latin America.  


Felo was behind the microphone for Don Larsen’s perfect game in 1956, Roberto Clemente’s 3,000th hit in 1972, and Hank Aaron’s 715th HR in 1974.  
As my late father used to say, Felo and baseball on the radio were made for each other.    
In recent years, Felo was the voice of The Miami Marlins.
