20-years is penalty for shoplifting in some countries...This is the year!

>7 days
Favorite Players:
(current and past)
Chico Lind and R.J Reynolds. No matter how many packs of baseball cards I opened, there would be six each of those two.
Why I am a fan:
There is nothing like coming from the Fort-Pitt Tunnel into the city of Pittsburgh. PNC now, and Three Rivers back when, always seem brighter and livelier than any other stadium I have ever visited.
Favorite Moments:
Gary Redus and his "bat twitch."
