Flight down to Spring Training with Red

I flew into Jupiter today. A very generous Cardinal fan offered up his private plane (mostly because I was with Red Schoendienst) for us to fly down for Spring Training. I absolutely love spending time with Red. He just turned 90 years old and is as cool as anyone I know...period.

Red may be the most incredible athlete that I have ever seen. The back of his baseball card gives you all the information that you need to see why he is a Hall of Famer, but the fact that this guy hardly misses a day of the duck season, and even more rarely misses a duck. He could also walk out there right now and drive a golf ball 250 yards right down the middle. They just don't make 'em like that any more.
