  1. Jim…did you play second base? I remember an outstanding second that gave me tips about playing that position when I was’t on the mound. Am I talking to the same guy? Ed

  2. Don’t think so Ed. I played short from HS until 75 about 10 yrs. I hurt my arm in the AF pitching batting practice (poor techniques, I guess), anyway I only played 1 year after the AF. I played short at San Angelo w/the Ed Givins that I knew and his catcher was a guy named Moose who supposedly had been drafted by the Cardinals.

  3. Jim…I must have gotten you mixed up with someone else, but Moose was my catcher back then. I remember a guy that taught me to kick the bag on a double play when I covered second and do it from the back side of the bag so they would have to come over the bag to get me. Was that you?

  4. No, that was not me. At San Angelo I played short and the ED that pitched for us would play second and first and only pitch when the pitcher (not very good) would get in trouble. Moose married a woman at Goodfellow that had kids and we all would tease him. The Eddie that I knew pitched on Crete for Able Flight and the base team, and ended up going to the world tournament as a pitcher. But I don’t think he got to pitch at that level but he still had a cool ring. He then went to Turkey from what I remember. Ed was also from Missouri.

  13. I lived at Iraklion Air Station from 1957 to 1960. I was 4 when we left. I wish I could find our housekeeper, FOFO, her husband, George, and the British lieutenant’s wife that invited me often for tea.
