… as Fee Dawson would have said. From one p.m. to about four p.m. I will watch the first game of the new season — my Mets playing the Marlins. Now, Ron’s Phillies may be touted as National League favorites, and our starting pitching may be shaky while our bullpen’s scrappy, but who knows, the Amazins may be back with a surprise this year. Above, the cover of a famous opening day scorecard — Ebbets Field 1947, the first time Jackie Robinson took the field for the Dodgers, a momentous day for baseball indeed. I borrowed it from Jeff Kisseloff’s website (subtitled “A tour through the detritus of history in my office”) & you can see more of that scorecard here.
