  • Sheeley touches ‘em all

    “The thing I like about baseball is that it’s one-on-one. You stand up there alone, and if you make a mistake, it’s your mistake. If you hit a home run, it’s your home run.”

    Hank Aaron is baseball’s all-time home run king. Yes, I know technically Barry Bonds put more balls over the fence than Aaron, but he did so with the assistance of performance enhancing drugs, so in my mind, and the mind of many baseball purists - those numbers are fraudelent.
