Email

There's unfinished business on this desk from the 90 days of summer. Here's one at the top of my list:

In 1954, Dick Erickson was a 16-year-old rookie on the famous Blomkest fast-pitch softball team that would accumulate state, regional and nationals championships. He's still playing.

Sure, his fastball has lost its zip, but he can still work the corners. The big shift is how far he now has to go to find a game.
