Kantar Wins 2017 Lazard Sportsmanship Award
Eddie was shocked?? I'm shocked, too. How could it be that 16 other people won it before him? I would have had him winning it every year.
Call for Hall of Fame Nominations
Eddie Kantar and Mike Lawrence "quit." They shouldn't have been considered for the HOF? I hope "quitting" isn't harmful. How about "retired" early - like Sandy Kaufax.

Videos from the Past
Hi Debbie -- Only because you asked (link below), I uploaded it. It is so amateurish -- almost comical as I look back at it now. But, in the 1980's, video/editing equipment was archaic--it was a big struggle to match the music (Billy Joel) with the footage I took. A ...
Videos from the Past
