Scrap Iron Carberry!!??

So Anna bought me a new Orioles cap.  It’s one of the Cooperstown Collection 1963 caps and when I put it on and looked at myself all I could think to myself is that I resemble the original Orioles catcher, Clint “Scrap Iron” Courtney.  From what I can tell, Clint never wore this “B” cap but, whatevs, he wore glasses and I wear glasses so there!!

Here’s me….

It’s my baseball card!

Now here’s my boy, Scrap Iron

I could MAYBE hold Scott’s ego in this huge glove!

Dig that elephant ear glove that original Orioles Manager, Paul Richards developed so that Clint could catch Hoyt Wilhelm’s knuckleball.

So anyway, that’s it.  I can’t wait for next baseball season.  Go O’s!!

I'm one nifty dude who is fascinated by his hometown; Baltimore, MD. It is persistently beautiful and ugly and I wish to live nowhere else ever again.

    Love the new cap Scott! Color me jealous!

    Hey, did you attend the Ad-Hoc Fiascos in Wyman Park?

    • This is how shitty I am…I never even heard of the Ad-Hoc Fiasco’s. At 46 years of age, I’ve managed to just miss some really cool Baltimore Arts stuff. I’ve also managed to be in the middle of some neat stuff too.
