Cy Young ,a legend and some Little Leage admirers

Here is the Card of the day. How fortunate were these little guys to get advice from Cy Young ?Young credited his off season farming chores, including wood chopping, with keeping his pitching strength in good shape until he was 44. Even at the time of his retirement, his arm was healthy, but Young had gained weight and was unable to field his position anymore. In three of his last four years, he was the oldest player in the league.

How awesome that would have been to be a kid listening to the great Cy Young. It would be cool to hear from one of those kiddos now!

Like most kids they were probably stubborn and ignored his advice.
