19TH HOLE: THE READERS TAKE OVER
Edited by Gay Flood
August 05, 1985
LONG LEASE ON LIFESir:I just finished reading perhaps the best article I have ever read in your publication, Paul Zimmerman's The Long Way Up (July 22). I believe that Howie Long will become one of the greatest linemen ever. I also feel he's underrated even though his two All-Pro selections speak for themselves. By the way, great cover of Long. It's hanging in my room right next to a picture of Mean Joe Greene!JEFF ROMEOMahopac, N.Y.

?The 1 a.m. curfew applies only to the American League. There is no curfew in the National League, except in the case of a rain delay after 12:45 a.m., when National League rules call for the game to be suspended and resumed at a later date.—ED.

BRONZED RED
Sir:
In your article about Marge Schott (Marge Has Them Eating Out Of Her Hand, July 15), who or what does the statue on her desk represent?

?The bronze commemorates the career of Reds catcher Johnny Bench.—ED.

JUST IN TIME

Sir:
It's midseason in baseball and time to pause. The high-flying St. Louis Cardinals have the best record in baseball and generate the same excitement the Gas House Gang did in the early '30s, yet not a word about the Cards from SI. Is this an example of East Coast selective journalism?

Signed, an excited Cardinal fan but frustrated SI reader.

Sir:
My apologies to you! Three days after I wrote a letter criticizing SI for ignoring the most exciting team in baseball, the St. Louis Cardinals, you gave the Cardinals the attention they deserve in an excellent piece by Craig Neff (The Cards Are Coming Up Aces, July 22). Thank you for an ace of an article!
