New of J. R. Richard’s passing was sad news yesterday. By all accounts, he was a great person, although, we knew him only as a great pitcher cut down in his prime.
The report from mlb.com that is linked above covers the highlights of an all-to-brief career. A moment of silence, please, for one of the great ones.
You won’t find his name in the baseball Hall of Fame. Maybe distinctive careers like his should be remembered there.

I volunteer as a photographer for our local community theater. I have opinions about politics and believe it should be every American's duty to become informed and participate in the discussion of issues. I began this blog to be able to stay in touch in ways I used to on Facebook. I deleted that account recently and hope to be able to share photographs and information relating to cultural and political events in our community. I am retired after a career in social work and post-secondary education.
