You have the coolest friends. I'm learning some really cool baseball trivia today from everyone's card blogs. Earlier this morning, I learned that MLB's first diamond vision was constructed at Dodger Stadium. Now I've learned that the only MLB player ever nominated for the Pulitzer Prize is Mr. Colton. Very cool stuff.
