  4. I first met Dick when we played park board baseball together. He and I were a novelty at the time.We were both left handed and pitchers. We never forgot one another over the years and when we crossed paths our conversations were lengthy. The last one we had together was outside the Frying Pan restaurant about a year ago. He wanted to talk and Joy wanted to go. Joy’s parents were friends of my parents. Rest in peace lefty. Jim Ebsen
