Tonight was the 25th annual Triple-A baseball All-Star Game in Buffalo at was once Pilot Field back in 1988. I lost track of all the corporate incarnations the venue has had since then because I haven’t been to a game in this millennium. I saw via Twitter that it was a great event and that was nice to hear. One of the greatest baseball events in the Queen City always seemed to be the filming of the immortal film “The Natural” at “The Old Rockpile” (War Memorial Stadium) in 1983.
It had me remembering that my first summer job at Rich Products Corporation afforded my the opportunity to have my first published story in the summers of 1991-1994. It was a standard Q&A feature with Bisons slugger Greg Tubbs. I was a summer intern and contributed to the Buffalo Bisons and Buffalo Sabres magazines.
