      No..it's an article from 1905.

      If you want to see it, I have to take a screen shot of it..just give me the nay or yay.

                  Nice article. I didn't know he was already a doctor then.

                  I'll send you some Singapore Dollars...

                      He was just studying at that point.

                      That's how he got his nickname "Moonlight."

                      He was playing ball and studying at the same time.

                      He didn't actually get his license until 1909.

                      And he played two innings in that game in 1905. He was on-deck for the final out of the game so he came so close to getting to the plate.

                        1. Field of Dreams - James Earl Jones' speech - "It's Baseball, Ray" - is the best soliloquy ever!!!

                        2. The Natural - This gives all of us older guys hope of playing in the Majors.

                        3. Eight Men Out - A huge piece of baseball history. It changed the face of the game.

                        4. A League of Their Own - Tom Hanks in one of his best roles. Also an up-to-then forgotten piece of important baseball history.

                          I've got to go with Field of Dreams. Classic film, great story, terrific acting. Not only one of my all time favorite sports movies, but one of my favorite films of any genre.

                          I can't believe I almost forgot to mention Major League, too. Awesome, awesome movie.

                            I am disappointed Bull Durham wasn't mentioned till page 2.
