So many baseball legends are gone.
|Patricia Maris autograph, anyone?|
Their stories aren’t.
Their wives remain. The movie 42 will remind the world that many a star player might have been far less without a supportive spouse.
Rachel Robinson knows. For a $10 donation to the Jackie Robinson Foundation, she’ll sign.
Other wives could be moved to sign, too. I’ve seen some interviews from Patricia Maris, wishing aloud that Roger could get Hall of Fame consideration.
As a generation of stars disappear, I’m looking to write to their wives. Baseball history is still there. We just have to look harder.
Readers: would you collect autographs of baseball wives? Why, or why not?
