Perfect Gentlemen

On ye olde baseball road, I have met many, many people. Some waltz by the camera in the amount of time it takes to eat peanuts and crackerjacks at a ball park. Some have become life long friends. Funny how this mirrors the real world. Two of the finest gentlemen that I have ever met are pictured here. Willie Lee, former Negro League outfielder for the Kansas City Monarchs and the Birmingham Black Barons stands next to David Brewer, Director of Rickwood Field, the oldest ball park in use in the country. Opening in 1910, it predates Fenway Park by two years. As David tells it, Fenway is a mere pup.
