the duke and dodgers were my favorites growing up in the fifties in minnesota. i batted left and roamed centerfield in high school and college but there our similarity ended. the duke represents the best of baseball in america. he spoke to young boys and referred to those who smoked and drank as knotheads . that stayed with me always...i lived that way and raised my children that way. thanks duke, your friend always, hugh from minnesota
