Harry Alvin would have been 93 this year and all of his close family and everybody he mentioned serving or playing ball with has died. Before he went to Bethlehem Central High School in Delmar, N.Y., and lettered in baseball, football, basketball, bowling, golf and track, Grandpa played little league ball.

The Twins, however, have been fantastic and the Tigers have mostly underachieved.
