Abstract

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"Walking out of the tunnels of Baltimore’s Memorial Stadium, even after the roaring crowds had departed in compressed streams of red taillights, was the best part of the evening, John Angelina had decided early in the baseball season. Especially now that the Orioles were headed for a pennant and possibly the World Series, the line of groupies would wait for the pitchers. Not that the other players or positions were any less attractive, it was just something about the pitchers. Particularly that battery of pitchers that year that would in fact find heroes in all unlikely places and circumstances; that year that would deliver a resounding win at the World Series against the legendary Los Angeles Dodgers and the brilliant Sandy Koufax."
