I remember it well … we were on the way to my Aston Middletown Little League game, and it happened. Mike Schmidt hit his 500th home run, and my little league game was the reason my dad didn’t see it. That’s how I remember one of the 100 Things Phillies Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die. Dad never made me feel bad about that by the way.
Bill Baer usually writes about stats, but in this book he writes about memories. His new book, 100 things Phillies Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die is exactly what the title says it is.
We talked about the book, and what it’s like for a guy who normally writes about numbers to write about something like this.
