A Very Random Cub Encounter

1

Driving home from California to Nevada over the Sierras through infamous Donner Pass; the first place one would expect to meet a former Cub pro, right? There we were at a stop when a car parked next to us with OLD CUB as a plate and MLBPA Alumni as the plate frame. An older couple climb out and the guy puts on a fresh Cub cap. I had to say hello. Result? He's 1957-58 LHP Ed Mayer. 22 starts in MLB, 2 HR allowed - Willie Mays and Hank Sauer. Check out the link. He has plenty of neat stories, met Babe Ruth, etc. He gave us a baseball card and then we went on our way.
