My first year following the Cardinals was Stan's last year as player. In a game against the Mets at the Polo Grounds that summer he had three home runs in his first three at bats, followed by a single in his last plate appearance. When he retired he held the player record for the most player records, iircc.
I know exactly what that's like. Lost my dad in 07. We got tickets to game 3 of the 06 WS. That was the year of the "Spiezio" the fake little soul patch. Vendors were selling them everywhere before the game. I bought one and had Dad stick it on. I took his picture.Yes, Dad was right a lot! Lost him in 2009, but I talked to him throughout the magical 2011 playoffs. I still talk to him often.

It didn’t seem like it to me. Everyone seemed surprised by the call. He did rest his arms but didn’t 100% stop but in no way did he try to trick the runner. It seemed to be a weak call. I’ve seen worse not get calledSorry, I was watching in a bar, with no sound, in Chicagoland. Was that really a balk, prior to the 2nd chance 2 run shot?

You're probably right though the NL series are the first ones to be played so it's possible that for at least Game 1 down there on Thursday October 3rd it might be at a somewhat reasonable time. The entire NL postseason will air on TBS.My guess is television. Yankees and Dodgers in prime time.
