Back on June 1st, Scott Brown had a book signing at Barnes and Noble.  Here is a link to the Amazon site.

Here is Scott and his lovely wife.  The link above takes you to the Amazon site where you can read a section of his book.  The section that is chosen for you to read tells about my father and I being out in Los Angeles.  We had gone to see the Angeles play in Chavez Ravine and Bo Belinsky was in the outfield warming up.  My father held up a photo he had made of Belinsky as a Pensacola Don and got him to autograph the photo.  Scott obviously does a better job of relating the story, so please click on the link and enjoy yourself.  The book goes along with the video made by WSRE on Baseball History in Pensacola.  This video is much better than anything Ken Burns has produced and that is my own personal opinion.  Here are several more photos from that day …

Even Kazoo got into the act and you can tell by the smile on this little one’s face that everyone had a good time!  It is good to see everyone turning out and supporting such a great project such as this book and also the video.  I believe that you can go to WSRE’s web site and purchase a copy of the video.  I hope Scott does not stop with this project because he is such an excellent writer.  Let us hear from you and thanks for looking … please check back … Frank

I made these back in the around 1980 … the new ball park is built on the land across from the sewage plant.  One more from the south looking north …

The News Journal reported this week that it took 20 million dollars to get this site prepared to build the ball park … the ball park cost 18 million dollars to construct … I guess the 16 million or so dollars left goes for landscaping.  Enjoy!!
