Nomie made the All-Star team! Makes me want to get out old photos and think about how happy we were together.
I like to think this had a little something to do with a homegrown Fenway effort. After starting the season on the DL, Nomar is leading the National League with a .359 average. If he can stay on top, he’ll be the first player to win a batting title in each league in….well, on second thought, instead of giving it away, let’s make this a bonus trivia question. What the hell, I’m feeling giddy. When was the last time it happened and, for a cookie, who did it? No Googling!
So an all-around tip of the hat for Nomar. I suppose this just goes to show that every thorn has its rose.
