To Gerard's brother David, my sincere condolences on the passing of your brother. While it's been many years, I still have fond memories of our many baseball games 'behind the barn'. Your brother was a home-run king many times over. May he Rest in Peace, God Bless. (I sent the link to Gerry Frandsen)
