We usually don’t hear much about Jimmie Foxx anymore. Or read much about him. And it’s too bad. For Foxx was one of the greatest players ever to grace the diamond.
Bobby Lemke and Leo Smith were two of my best friends growing up in Hoboken in the 1960’s. And they still are. If the weather was bad and we couldn’t play stickball, boxball or touch football, we would head to Bobby’s house (or Leo’s or mine) to play APBA Baseball.
