Buster and Baseball

With no major league baseball thus far this year, fans are turning to rebroadcasts, articles, etc. to help fill the void. How about some info on Buster's love of the game? I came across a piece by the Society For American Baseball Research written in 2011. Definitely worth a read. Here is the link. Enjoy!
