When I was playing Little League baseball, I remember my dad telling me that the Cleveland Indians had the best field in the majors. I now know why that field was so special—the dedication, pride and skill of the Bossards.

Smith's article made me realize that the Bossard family has a harder work ethic than some of the baseball players. The Bossards are the ones who should be making the millions of dollars and getting all of the respect.

Lenny Wilkens is not in a league of his own as a Hall of Fame player turned Hall of Fame coach (SCORECARD, Sept. 28). In 15 seasons with the Montreal Maroons and the Montreal Canadiens, Hector (Toe) Blake (above) scored 527 points, helped his teams win three Stanley Cups, led the league in scoring in 1938-39 and finished in the top 10 four other times. Blake then went on to coach the Canadiens for 13 seasons, during which he won eight more Stanley Cups and had a .634 winning percentage. While Wilkens is deserving of the double enshrinement, Blake is certainly worthy of the same respect for his accomplishments.
