All good wishes.

This little guy who has followed baseball day by day for more than half a century sends his warm congratulations to the publisher, managing editor, and all members of SI that contributed to your remarkable baseball issue (April 9). I know it was a gigantic task to assemble all of the material, but I say it was worth the time involved.

YOUR BASEBALL SPECIAL BEST OF ITS KIND I'VE EVER READ. GOOD ENOUGH TO CARRY IN MY BRIEFCASE ALL SEASON.
Sometimes your magazine irritates me with what seems, to me, excessive emphasis on the offbeat, esoteric and (occasionally) not-sports-at-all. But you certainly gave the national pastime tremendous treatment.
I LIKE BASEBALL, BUT...
I have nothing against baseball but: Where is Mr. Caper? You can't put him out!
ALEXANDER D. HORNE
As always I turned to my favorite section first, your 19TH HOLE, to see what readers are thinking, only to find that you had omitted it. Baseball is fine, but let's put it this way: whatever you do, don't do it again.
GEORGE READING KINSLEY
I am fond of baseball, but I love golf. I was most annoyed not to find a TIP FROM THE TOP in the baseball issue. I suggest you include two in the next issue to make some recompense for this omission.
I am a baseball follower and enjoyed that part of the magazine very much. But I was very disappointed to find that it was necessary for you to leave out the schedule of sports events for the coming week.
I find this schedule very much a part of my sports life and consider its omission a big mistake.
