The man who conquered Hollywood but not a major league curveball has never lost his love for the game or for the city he calls home (The Endless Summer of Bob Uecker). And that's why, despite all his success in other endeavors, he has never left. As a native Milwaukeean, I understand the city's love for Mr. Baseball, and his enduring love in return.

The Name Game
I have listened to or read about baseball for 60 years. I have seen or heard the names mentioned by Steve Rushin (POINT AFTER). Such diverse monikers can make the background of the national pastime all the more charming. Thank you for finding such melody.

Rushin passed over 46 major leaguers of the Q variety, including two Quirks (myself and Jamie), two Quicks, three Queens and 11 Quinns. For this omission, we award him the Quisenberry.

I wish I could have seen Sheriff Blake handcuff Jimmy Outlaw with an inside fastball.
