What If...?After reading the article What Might Have Been...in your Special Classic Edition (July 19), I began to think about Ray Chapman, the Cleveland shortstop who was killed in 1920 by a beanball thrown by Carl Mays of the Yankees. Had that not occurred, what might have happened to Joe Sewell, the 1920 graduate of Alabama whom the Indians brought up that year to replace Chapman and who went on to become a Hall of Famer?BROOK SEIFERT Bayside, N.Y.

My husband's role was to bring to Europeans his love and knowledge of the game, at which he was once one of the best. He should not be degraded with a comparison to a "creaky 16th-century windmill." Bert went to the Netherlands with a bunch of fine young men, not a bunch of scrubs as stated in your article.

This could have been a wonderful story, capturing the truth of a victorious trip. Instead, it was cynical and unjust to the many people who worked so hard to make the trip the success that it was.
