Dom Provisiero of the O.Z. League crafted this guest post for today:
As some of you already know; I created the O.Z. League (APBA BASEBALL) in 1982.
So for 30 years I have been drafting and acquiring MLB players for my Ozone Outlaws team. And every once in a while you get an opportunity to meet the "card" that graced your roster.
Such was the case last night when I went to a book signing by Frank Catalanotto in Smithtown NY.
I have to tell you I enjoyed every minute of his talk and his Q&A session. Boy what I would give to sit and talk to him minus the crowd and kids…..lotta stories that he probably could not tell in front of an audience. He played for a number of teams in his career and a diverse group of teammates.
I came away having even more respect for him as a person……he’s a great guy. A good ballplayer but even more so a good Dad, son, and husband.
And I am proud to say he was an Outlaw and always will be……at least in my heart anyway.
