"You spend a good piece of your life gripping a baseball and in the end it turns out that it was the other way around all the time." -- Jim Bouton, "Ball Four"

Wow. I was 12 in '87. That team got me to love baseball. Thank you for the memories.

It's about the same for me, I was 15 that season and really not a baseball fan until that point. I've been one ever since, though.

I was in 10th grade. We had just moved from one part of cornfield county to another. The Twins helped me to make friends. The 91 series was my sophomore year in college. While it was amazing and special, 87 will always be the most magical.

"I was 12 in 87." "I was 15..." "I was in 10th grade..."

Yes...thanks Parker. Thanks a lot.

Well, Chief, I was 10 in 1965. When I read the first 3 comments above, I just remembered that and smiled. :)

Looking forward to more of your Grandma's treasures, Parker.
