Put Me In Coach, I'm Ready To Play
1990. A Baseball Character Cut-Out from Scholastic.
DANNY the paper doll by Mary Engelbreit.
December 12, 1915. This paper doll reminds me of one of my favorite ball players. The dark wavy hair and dark eyes, yes, he reminds me of the lefty Bob Knepper. Back in the late 1970's, the 1980's and into the early 1990's, I went to a lot of Astro games. When Knepper was with the team I tried to get tickets for the nights he was pitching. I thought he was lovely to look at - and he was a really good pitcher too!
