Baseball and bowling...

Thanks to Dave Kiffer for bringing
up those childhood memories that seem to be stuck somewhere in
the back of our minds. Your baseball story was great.... I remember
spending a lot of time at the ballpark growing up, especially
when my dad was president of Little League. I am now spending
time at the ballpark with my own kids. In fact, I think one of
the Settje boys lives here and has his own kids in Little League.
Now your story about Billiken
Bowl... I was never much of a bowler, but always had fun. Even
the old skating rink behind what used to be "Race Drug".
We used to either go there every Saturday afternoon or to some
wonderful (ha!) Tarzan movie at the Revilla Theater.
Thanks. I love your articles.

"Star Bowling at the Billiken" - Hall of Fame bowler Dick Weber died
earlier this Spring and that got me thinking about my "misspent"
youth at the old Billiken Bowl on Stedman Street.
Not-so-young man's fancy - It's spring, the sun is high in the
sky and a not-so-young man's fancy turns to baseball.....cards!
