    Photo of Dusty as a Kid

    SI has a photo series called "When Pro Athletes Were In Little League"

    It includes this picture of Dusty.

    Greg Maddux was already collecting a paycheck when he was in Little League? And from the Cardinals?

    Best non-baseball athlete shown? Michelle Wie! There was a girl who played a few years on a team my son played on and one of the opposing coaches detested it - he was just horrible (in fact, I think he forfeited one game, he found it so objectionable). When they finally did play them, she absolutely knocked the daylights out of the ball.

    No wonder he is always referencing Hank Aaron...he looks just like him in the face!

    She was a Little League MARLIN. So, that makes me feel pretty freaking old.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Payton Manning's cap is pretty fantastic.

    Sammy Sosa looked like he was 15 in Little League. Why does that not surprise me?

    Mark Reynolds and Ryan Zimmerman were also in that league at the same time. Not bad.

    I think Reynolds, Zimmerman, Wright, Cuddyer, and both of the Upton brothers played in that league at around the same time

    I found this article from a quick google search: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...T2008102403867

    Upton, Wright and Cuddyer played for the Virginia Blasters, a local AAU team. They played against Zimmerman, a Virginia Beach native who played for the rival Tidewater Drillers. In high school, they played together for the Tidewater Mets, a traveling club team

    I don't know what was in the water in the Va. Beach area in the mid-'80s/early '90s, but it sure wasn't there when I was a kid.

    The Zach Grienke pic got me. Because any of us with kids has that exact same photo somewhere in the house. Is our boy the next 100M arm?
    Attended 1976 World Series in my Mother's Womb. Attended 1990 World Series Game 2 as a 13 year old. Want to take my son to a a World Series Game in Cincinnati in my lifetime.

    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids
