I could not help but reading your "confession" regarding putting to rest your Warren Spahn 300 glove. I too have one that I got when I lived in Milwaukee during the 50's and early 60's. My dad used to take me to many of the Milwaukee Braves games during that time period. I was a big fan of "Spahnie" so naturally when I was 11 my dad bought me my Warren Spahn 300.
I have kept it in great shape, supple with a wonderful patina. I now have a 7 year old son whose team I am coaching. Just today I was out there with my "Spahnie" throwing the ball around with my son and his friends. Currently I live in the S.F. bay area, so we get to go the the Giants games. So, the generations pass and memories are made. Some day I imagine my son will be with his son telling similar stories.
So, thanks for the nostalgic article you wrote. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
