Spring has officially arrived and we're coming out of hibernation.

Here's a great note and memory from Paul aka vertigone:

As a reader of your fine blog, I thought you might be interested in seeing this.  I was looking through old ticket stubs last night and cross referencing with Retrosheet, to be reminded of some of the games and players I'd seen, (baseball season can't start soon enough obviously!) and found this one from a game I attended in Loge 13 in '83.  All was going well until the 9th, when Doug Risk...er, Sisk gave up 2 runs and the Mets lost 6-5. 
Enjoy, and keep up the good work.

Thanks alot Paul. Good game too. Strawberrry went 2-4 and Mookie stole his 48th base! Y'all can click on the ticket below to see it in all it's full size, sky-blue 1983 glory:
