Oh I wish I had the speed...Stealing would be my greed...etched in time...with dirt and grime....and victory with the glorious deed

True story... late for our very first game, me and my dad! Looked to the right as we entered the left field bleachers and there was Jackie stealing home! Talk about a momentous image etched in my memory!!!
