Terry,
It was so good to hear from you. I think you were a catcher, even though we were younger you always found time to play catch with me and your brother. I umpired the state baseball sectional at Nazareth, not too far from you. This will be my 43rd year officiating baseball and basketball. I sure miss Fernwood. I played briefly in the minors, but had knee problems (1974-1975). I played collegiately at Ellsworth, Iowa C.C., then went to Univ. of Missouri,Columbia. My mother still lives, in Calumet Park, so I sometimes go thru Roseland (not good). In fact August 11, I'm going back to Roseland Christian, for a re-union, at the school, 108th and Princeton. How's your brother (1st baseman). I umpired minor league ball for a few years and College Division 1, but travel was too much. I see Dave Noort once in a while, he lived at 10415 Normal, real tall, his younger brother Don (6'10"0 played at Indiana. Chicago Christian guys. I could go on forever, with memories, but you know what we miss. Oh, I also see Doug Murray, he's a scout for the White Sox. He's practically at every game I umpire. He also might be a couple of years yopunger than you.
Really great to hear from you.
