ANSWERSSir:I really enjoyed your Baseball Issue (April 12), but it raised a few questions. First, how can Dave Concepcion and Joe Morgan win Gold Glove awards two years in a row (Morgan won three in a row) and not be the National League's best double-play combination? (Jim Kaplan says Cash and Bowa are the best!)

The removal of ice also takes away a great deal of the risk that makes hockey the fast-moving, suspenseful game that it is. Tom Colley of the American Hockey League says that the waxlike lubricant "doesn't rut," which makes falls less likely, which in the end makes it a different game. In short, ice is the essence of hockey. Take it away and you give the game to the money-grabbers, who are the only ones who will profit by the change.
