Tug, Locks Flowing

The Buzz Capra tribute (in a manner of speaking) of recent days left me longing for Tug McGraw in his Met prime. He lost his hair to the Marines and later to radiation therapy, but in between he went long when it was considered out of line for ballplayers to do so. Hair’s to individuality, tradition and the immortal lefty fireman and part-time Bowery barber who will always embody both for us.
