Missing The Bird

I’ll miss The Bird.  Mark Fidrych died yesterday at age 54.

I don’t know whether my memories actually inhabit my brain yet from watching him pitch, or if being a Tigers fan you’ve seen the film and retrospectives enough.  But I remember what a character he was and anything that gives me back a little bit of that feeling of being a young boy watching baseball with my Dad is a good thing.
