“I really like baseball. I like playing it; I like following it. … I’m 55 now and I still love it. … I play with my neighbor kid. He’s 11 or 12 now. We play over at his house. We try to hit the wiffle ball over his house. Sometimes it lands on the roof and it comes down and you catch it, then the guy’s out. I still love doing that as much as I did when I was his age. I would do it all the time if I could. I’d be doing it now.”
