Last Day Before the EuroBall VII Adventure


Sunday, April 24, 2016:

It was the last day before I blast off to Sweden for my EuroBall VII Adventure, so what better way to spend the day, but with family.

First stop was with son Michael at the Skirball Cultural Center and Museum to see two interesting exhibits about baseball.

 Mike at the Entrance

There were lots of great things to see that advanced the concept that baseball has been a vehicle for immigrants from many nations to assimilate into American culture.

Hank Greenberg

The Skirball Museum primarily focuses on Jewish Culture so Greenberg was a natural for this exhibit.

Ben Sakoguchi's "Orange Crate" Art
is amazingly good and interesting

The old Boston Braves Pitching Duo

I remember this game from 1959

Mike, a Civil War Re-Enactor,
liked this one

Fun in Pre-WWII days

You had to be there

Moe Berg was a MLB catcher and
a WWII spy for the USA

PC?

 PC?

Joe Garagiola?

Sign of the Times

 Jackie Robinson, The Early Years

 Jackie Robinson, The Last Year

Love those 70s!

 Mike liked this one too!

Back from the Skirball, we spent the rest of the afternoon just hanging out with Mike, Vanessa and the grandkids.

As always, Mike who is a Master Packer, helped me load up my suitcase for the trip to Upplands Väsby, Sweden via Stockholm.

Tack så mycket, Mike!

 Jacob was as funny as ever

 Mary wanted to talk

It was a really good day!

Reading Is FUNdamental

WOW!

Another interesting historical novel from Max Allan Collins, this time about the death of Marilyn Monroe.

Damn the Kennedy brothers and I'm not crazy about Joe DiMaggio any more either.
