Charlie

“So you need to put your golf balls in the oven and heat ‘em up,” Charlie explained to me back in ‘73, as we sat on the bench during a May AAA game in Phoenix, “That’ll make ‘em go farther.” We were set to play golf the next morning at the Mesa Country Club versus our manager Jim “Davy” Davenport and Sherm Stone, part-owner of our minor-league team.


“I’ve never heard that before,” I replied, still learning the finer points of the game.


“You bet,” Charlie nodded, “And make sure you bring some Chap Stick, too.”

What We Think About When We Think About Dad

DERRICK MAY: Father’s Day is on Sunday and the holiday of course makes us think about our dad, Dave May, whom we lost on October 20,2012. There were so many great things about Dad that not everyone knows, how he made our childhood magical, funny, exciting, happy. You know, it’s the vivid moments that stay with you from the early years. He was in many ways a hero to us and when we think about him, we feel like kids again. My brother David and I would like to share a few thoughts and moments from our life that made Dad very special to us.
