Sidd Finch

I still remember the story of Sidd Finch from time to time. I recalled the catcher's exaggerated grimace, but I already knew what was up by then. I also recall the first few words of the first subheading, "He's a pitcher, part yogi and part..." something or other. But nothing else of the entire article.

I didn't get suspicious at the Table of Contents (you can see the issue page-by-page here), which in retrospect, I should have. I remain proud that I got it from the first subheading, though.  There was something too long, too unusually worded about it.

I imagine publishing the best of the Letters to the Editor the following week was enjoyable. But I don't think I even finished the article.  It's a little creepy to read relaxed and kind words about Lenny Dykstra now. The picture on page 94 is a beauty, though.

Ah, the April 1 issue. I recall hearing about it.
