I'm betting enough of you have received cards from reader Mark Hoyle that you mainly associate one word with the guy: vintage. For the third time so far (June, August), Mr. Hoyle lived up to that reputation with another quality PWE:
In the deciding game 5 of the 1972 ALCS, Reggie Jackson led off the top of the second with a walk and eventually knotted up the score (Freehan had grounded in a run earlier) by stealing home. Hendrick replaced him in center in the second, reached on an error in the 4th and came around to score on a Gene Tenace single for the winning run, slipping past Bill's tag. Oakland went on to beat the Reds in 7 games.
Coleman is a nice addition too as he joins some of the other 73s Mark sent me a few months ago. If I wasn't getting them from him I might not be getting them at all!
Thanks again for a great PWE, Mark! I promise to get a nice response chock full of recent Red Sox headed your way soon!
