    Oooh, other Red Sox fans!

    I went to a game last month, but it was vs. the devil rays. (And of course, Red Sox won) I used to go see Yankees vs. Red Sox all the time when I was little, but I would love to go now.

    Wow, this guy went from a World Series to working in a department store? Sad. Does anybody remember this player? I think I do.



    Former Major Leaguer Charged With Skipping Child Support
    Holton Arrested At Manchester Discount Store

    MANCHESTER, N.H. -- A former Major League baseball pitcher has been arrested on charges he skipped out on thousands of dollars of child support.

    Former Baltimore Oriole and Los Angeles Dodger Brian Holton is being held in Manchester on charges from Wisconsin that he owes nearly $43,000 in child support.

    Baseball-almanac.com says Holton, 46, earned $347,000 in his final year as a relief pitcher for the Orioles in 1990. He pitched for the Dodgers for four years in the 1980s and two years for the Orioles.

    Holton lives in Manchester. He was arrested at his job at a discount store on Wednesday after police in Maquon, Wis., called Manchester police with word Holton was wanted.

    Court records show Holton reported $12,166 income in 2004 and $17,517 in 2003.

    When people go from six figure salaries to being without income it's not uncommon for them to fall on hard times, as their life as a pro athlete is all about now, not later.

    JR Richards, who threw over 100 MPH on a routine basis for the Houston Astros was found living under a bridge in Houston a few years ago.

    Most sports don't have much of a pension plan for their players, and the average Pro career is very short. Until recently, the leagues did not offer much in the way of financial advice for new players, so they were kids with bunches of money, and spent accordingly. This left them with little to nothing fo rtheir future.

    Richards, A 6 foot 6 pitcher had a stroke, early in his career.

    He was a monster and was pretty intimidating on the mound. He never pitched in the majors again-it's really sad to hear about him ending up living like that.

    (I got into a fight with an Astros fan at a game about Richards and his stroke.
    This loudmouthed punk was ragging me about the fact that the Dodgers would win the West because he was on the Disabled List.....I told him that if we won the division because of an injury/illness it wasn't worth it.....)


    Karen,
    That reminds me of a great story.

    There was a bar that would give out free drinks after every homerun by the home team.....During one very important game the bar was packed.

    One of the hometeam players jerks a tater into the stands.

    THE CROWD WENT WILD!!!!!

    The bartender, pouring for the house, gets halfway through before ANOTHER ball goes to the stands......


    He finishes his job and starts to pour the second round...

    He finished pouring THAT ROUND and when he gets back to the game he notices that the score is one run short.....


    He finally realizes that he poured the second round of drinks on a REPLAY OF THE HOMERUN!!!

    Sigh, And they were having a pretty good season until last week. Must they *always* have a late-season meltdown? Sigh.

    Got this in an email:


    The Boston Globe
    August 21, 2006

    Roxbury MA (AP) - A seven-year-old boy was at the center of a Boston

    courtroom drama yesterday when he challenged a court ruling over who

    should have custody of him. The boy has a history of being beaten by his

    Parents and the judge initially awarded custody to his aunt, in

    keeping with child custody law and regulations requiring that family unity

    be maintained to the degree possible.

    The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him

    more than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her. When

    the judge then suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy

    cried out that they also beat him.

    After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning

    that domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, the

    judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who should

    have custody of him. After two recesses to check legal references and

    confer with child welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody

    to the Boston Red Sox, whom the boy firmly believes is not capable of

    beating anyone.
