More Sparky Lyle and Kellogg's Cards

I added nine new cards to my Kellogg's baseball card collection today.  It's been a busy day with work, coaching and school musical performances, so details will need to wait until morning.

Until then, here is something from 4-19-1972.  According to Sparky Lyle was the first relief pitcher to enter a game with his own song.  Yankee Stadium played Pomp and Circumstance on this day in 1972 when Lyle was called into the game.  Lyle didn't like the pressure that the song put on him as a closer so he asked them to stop.

Other good reading from April 19th - check out the story about the baserunner who stole second base and later got caught stealing second base in the same inning.  You can even check the box score!
