For some reason I can't drop a picture here; but here's to Connie "The Hawk" Hawkins who could have been the best ever if given the chance. There is no Doc J or MJ if he didn't come first.

Mike Shannon



There's a kinda funny backstory to this entry.

I was a 7 year old kid living in Atlanta when the Braves came to town. The very first game that I ever went to was the Braves vs. the St. Louis Cardinals.

My folks never had a lot of money, but my dad fixed a television set for a guy who had some nice season tickets - right over the visiting bullpen (in those days - right behind the visiting dugout on the 3rd base line).

I had brought my glove to the game hoping to catch a foul ball.

The game itself, must have been fairly uneventful as I can't remember anything about it. But at some point, I wandered down to the railing right above the visiting bullpen. Mike Shannon (unknown to me at the time - period) was catching for a relief pitcher who was about to be summoned in.

I sat there at just watched the two players throwing the ball back and forth. I found this about as interesting as anything else going on.

Well at some point when the two players were done warming up, I hear this voice say, "hey kid!". I looked down and saw one of them (Mike Shannon) with a ball in his hand. He lobbed it up to me and I caught it! What a souvenir!

I took the ball home and made up some sort of makeshift trophy stand for it (a block of wood an a mustard jar lid, I think). I placed the baseball there and it just became like a shrine for me.

My brother and I owned most all of the gear used in neighborhood sandlot pick-up games. We had a closet full of balls, bats and gloves.

One day a bunch of kids were over at our house for a loosely organized game. While I was in the bathroom peeing, one of the kids asked through the bathroom door where he might find a baseball. I told him to look in my bedroom.

As I exited the bathroom, still zipping up my fly I turned into my bedroom and noticed the now empty home made display case!

I went flying out the front door hoping to retrieve my trophy ball. Two steps out the door I heard the sound of ash meeting horsehide. I watched the ball sail over the top of our house and into a veritable jungle of woods and vines in the area behind our house. We all stopped (about 18 - 20 kids) and searched the wooded area as thoroughly as we could ... to no avail. My trophy baseball was gone forever.

But that brief encounter with a real life baseball player - Mike Shannon did more to create a love for the game with me than anything else. I've always hoped to meet him one day to tell him this story!

Thanks; no Idea why I can't copy/paste photos in this web site. I still remember Connie dismantling Dave Debuscherre (I can't spell either) in his first all star game. I've never seen someone shoot a finger roll underhand shot from the foul line before or after than - not even George "Ice" Gervin who also bears mention here.
