Baseball Memories (Program 79)

Baseball, the great American pastime! George Haloulakos helps us to remember the days gone by of baseball, particularly while he was growing up in the 60s. George and his father have written a fantastic treatise on baseball history during this time period. We remember two celebrated players of the past: Don Drysdale and Sandy Koufax. We recall the excitement and wonder of going to baseball games back in the early 60s. The wonderful players who were professionals on the field, and true gentlemen with their many fans. This was a different time in the world of baseball, and we recall those days. Pictured above, the great Don Drysdale and Sandy Koufax.

George Haloulakos writes:

This program was inspired by an article written by George and his father, Dr. V.E. Haloulakos, that is dedicated to the blessed memory of Don Drysdale - who taught a whole generation of us kids on how to play to win and forever remains a touchstone in my dad's journey to becoming an American citizen, and to Sandy Koufax - who put God before the World Series, team above self, and integrity above fame.
