  1. You know, Elway put up some solid numbers, albeit as a low-level minor leaguer. His baseball career poses one of those fun “What if?” questions.

    Happy birthday in advance. My son’s birthday is the tenth, so we’ll be partying hard on the eleventh.

    Excellent Site!!! I just found it the other day. I can’t believe I didn’t know about it before. I love going to baseball games at all levels.

    I also love collecting bobblehead giveaways. I am interested in trading some of my bobbleheads with others who are interested. Do you know of any credible trading sites?

    Thanks for a great website. I will share it with all of my friends that are also baseball fans.
