Larry Doby: My Dad's Favorite

What does that say about him? He was from Cleveland.

He's very simple and unassuming. Very midwest. The less you say about him the more accurate the description. He took me to see 4 baseball games, 3 of which were Angel's games. The old War Memorial and the Jake were the closest stadiums (just under 150 miles!) so I've actually seen the Indians more than any other team. The best thing about him is that he let me and brother be whoever we wanted to be. No judgement, no criticism, no demands. If I can be half as cool as he is, I'll be alright.

Happy Father's day, Pop.
