I'm watching the North Carolina-Gonzaga game so a very short post tonight.
This 1980 Topps Fred Lynn card came out the very same year I started playing organized baseball. I loved the shot of Lynn, and I imagined he was running to the dugout from center field after a third out. For some reason I took to the way he tucked his glove up under his armpit as he ran and I started doing the same thing in my baseball games. Now I was always pitching or playing first base, so I didn't have as far to run in. But I did it anyway. I wanted to be like Fred.
