Dear NW Drizzle,
I liked the article about Koufax.
The first major league game I ever saw was at Dodger Stadium
in 1962 or '63. I was a St. Louis fan and I got to see Gibson
vs. Koufax. Koufax threw a three-hitter and Gibson a two-hitter.
The Dodgers won 1-0 when Tommy Davis hit a home run that barely
cleared the left field fence in bottom of the eighth.
Seeing the name Rundgren
was also kind of coincidental. While I always hated Todd Rundgren's
music, I scouted his son a couple years ago. He lives on Kauai
but played at Mid Pac, a private school, on Oahu. He was a skinny
shortstop with a damn good glove and not much of a bat. I saw
him as a college player. The Marlins ended up taking him in
the 11th round and he signed. He played at Kane County last
year and hit about .250. That's better than I thought he would
