Hey Guys, long time no post from the Drokester. On these "fox paw" or Faux pas gloves, I hope my Stonewall Jackson "Confederate Preferred" fielders mitt doesn't get taken for the real deal after my passing and Lord forbid if my soon whooped up, fingerless, web less, tipped finger, P.G.T. Beauregard model falls into dishonest hands!!! On a serious note, I hope the baseballs I gave as gifts don't get passed for the real deal. An e-xray will show the are recovered modern baseballs. given out of friendship and love for you glovers like me.
My Boy just graduated High School!!! Yeah!! A hurdle accomplished!!! I hadn't gotten him a graduation present, so on the way home, diploma in hand, I asked how much money he had received after graduation. he replied a couple hundred. As the father I am, I said "Boy, you are going shopping before we get home!" "You gotta start at the BOTTOM!" Yep, we stopped at a grocery store and he bought his first pack of toilet paper. He won't forget that life lesson!!!
Today, me and Mutt went out and played catch, been way to long, I grabbed my Howie Pollett Nokona and he the glove I had hand made for him when he was 8 by Glovesmith. The deal is he will tryout when the Appalachian Leagues have their try out days, In Papaw Pete's old wool uniform....the next Sid Fitch???
Yours in gloves The Drokester,
P.S. where oh where is a Pepper Martin PM tonight?????
