I was home in RI the summer between my soph and junior years at ND & went to a Red Sox game. Got here early and went down to the box seats next to the short foul line wall past third base. Yaz & Reggie Smith were playing catch & demonstrating to me why I wasn't a major leaguer. Throws like the flights of arrows. I was wearing an ND hat & Yaz asks if I go to ND - said yes and then he spent the next 10 minutes warming up and asking ND and Jake questions. My ND roommate was on the baseball team at the time so Yaz wanted to know about the program & Jake. Didn't know that Yaz went to ND on a basketball scholarship - broke Jim Brown's hs records out on Long Island.
