Players Group 1  _ RTP_31 Mar 16 _ SFW

The player on the far right is Steve Dalkowski and this photo was taken by my father back in 1959.  He is featured in a new movie called FASTBALL .  The movie is narrated by Kevin Costner and is worth seeing, whether or not you are a baseball fan.  It is an extremely entertaining movie and it covers a wide span in the history of baseball.  Here is an article written by Joe Posnanski about Dalkowski that really an interesting story and one of the best on him that I have read recently.  Mr Posnanski is one of the writers interviewed in the movie and is a sports writer when he is not doing movie interviews / work.  Dalkowski’s story is not a Cinderella one, but it is real and interesting.  There are other stories out there on Dalkowski and if you just Google his name you will find a half a dozen good articles.  It just goes to show you that for every Dimaggio, there are thousand of Dalkowskis out there, but then again – that’s life.  I do not have any stories to offer about Dalkowski when he played for the Dons.  I wish that I has something to share with you here and I hope that anyone that reads this and has something to share will.  In fact, I have only talked to a handful of people that have actually been to a Dons game.  The girl whose father owned the Dons, I believe his last name was Davis,  contacted me once and I wish that I had some way to get back in touch with her, because I have some questions to ask her about the Dons.  That is it for now … go watch FASTBALL and let me know what you think.  Thanks for looking and please let me hear your comments or your questions … Frank
