The score: Tobin Center 3, Ethan 2 -- frequently, in the summers of the late 1930s, maybe even into 1940!!!! Wermers, Schoenfelders, Feiners and Willis made up most each teams members. Second base was a rock and 3rd a cowpie. I can recall those games yet today. Norbert and I were not twins, but close. Though I didn't get to follow his life closely (nor he mine) it is with sadness that I read of his passing this morning. Please accept my sympathy. His was a life well llived.
