|Baseball great Roy Sievers|
Roy gave me an unforgettable moment in 1959 when he invited me into the dugout of the Washington Senators during a preseason exhibition game in Charlotte, North Carolina. A few years ago, I wrote about that moment in Drye Goods.
Roy's niece, Terry Cole, saw that essay and showed it to Roy, and thus began a series of phone conversations during which I talked to Roy about his stellar career. I wrote about those conversations in 2015 in an essay for the National Pastime Museum.
Roy was an old-school baseball hero and a generous and thoughtful guy. Thanks for the memory, Roy. You'll always be one of my heroes.
