Peter Falk, Baseball Player


I am sure many of you have read that the wonderful actor Peter Falk died today after a long illness. There is a priceless story in his obituary that is my baseball themed laugh of the week ( this does not count watching Sori run). Falk lost an eye to cancer when he was 3 and thus wore a glass eye, but he did not let this slow down his interest in athletics and he played baseball among other sports in high school.

 "In one story he liked to tell, after being called out at third base during a baseball game, he removed his eye and handed it to the umpire.

“You’ll do better with this,” he said.        

I would have loved to see the umps face after that.
