Wezen-Ball

Hippie Types

by Larry Granillo

Found in the January 1969 issue of Baseball Digest:

It seems the American Legion team of Austin, Texas, was not a big fan of long hair and beards. I suppose George Steinbrenner would have fit right in.

I wonder what they would have said about the current Rangers' Phiten necklaces.

I hope they would point out that those Phiten necklaces are essentially useless magic charms usually sold to gullible idiots and that Major League baseball should be fighting this kind of pseudoscientific crap just as aggressively as they fight tobacco use.
