in the icebox

8 january 2014

Minneapolis in January is the opposite of baseball weather. The polar opposite. It was -10 when my wife went out this morning. When she came back she said, “it didn’t seem so bad.” Probably because this is day 4 or 5 of sub-zero days. We are either getting used to it or merely numb.

However, it might be a perfect day for listening to the Cubs play the Dodgers, at Ebbets Field, June 4th, 1957, where it is a comfortable early-summer day, and 75 degrees.

It’s Sandy Koufax on the mound for the Bums, vs. Dick Drott for the Cubbies.
