Kirby Puckett RIP

Kirby Puckett, the venerable center for the Minnesota Twins, has gone to that big ballfield in the sky.

As a young man I idolized Puckett. Baseball has always been an important part of my life. The greatest lessons I learned were on the diamond with my friends around me and the smell of freshly mowed grass and red dirt.

It is a truly sad day for all us little boys at heart.
