Read what other fans have written about
"Who Am I?" Sox Baseball Cards

Enjoyed the Who Am I? page: I guess I got more than half.  The John(ny)
Buzhardt (accent on BUZ wit C__s but HARDT wit Sox) card reminded me that
when I was about 12, Buzhardt rented a house in my home burb (I won't
name it) and started seeing my father, a dentist, for (natch) dental
work.  My father told Buzhardt that I loved Aparicio, so Buzhardt brought
to his next appointment one of Aparicio's bats, one he'd cracked.  I was
amazed, grateful, thrilled: I taped up the narrow, jaggedly cracked part
of the handle; loved the pine tar still on it that St. L had actually
touched; used the bat (carefully) for fast pitching; slept with it
sometimes.  A couple years later I realized I hadn't seen that wonderful
bat around; eventually I discovered that my father (also a woodworker and
carpentry whiz) had drilled a hole through the fat end and used my
precious & magical Looiebat as a replacement handle on this little
tow-his-junk-around wagon he had in his garage workshop. 40 years more or
less later I still have not recovered.

Your Dad did nice work.  Buzhardt's teeth look GREAT!
