Rocky Road

Straight from his sprawling silhouette above the Right Field gate, it’s 1969 World Series Game Four defender extraordinaire Ron Swoboda out in center Sunday. The man they called Rocky was re-meeting and greeting the Fantasy Campers he coached earlier this year, chief among them, for our purposes, No. 17, Keith Hernandez Jeff Hysen. Jeff — who shared his experiences with FAFIF in January [1] and his extra ticket with me yesterday [2] — is finishing his Amazin’ journey with a day of baseball at Citi Field tomorrow with the other campers. I’d say “have fun!” but I think those instructions would be superfluous.
