Dare To Dream

On this day in baseball history, Larry Miggins hit the first of his only two home runs in major league history. 

It came off Preacher Roe in 1952 at Ebbetts Field, where Miggins' Cardinals would eventually fall to the Dodgers 14 - 8. 

Back in the day when Larry was growing up, he and a friend had shared their dreams of major league baseball during an assembly in prep school. 

That friend was also at the game, and had also accomplished his goal.  They had wondered what the odds against both of them making it would be.

The friend's name was Vin Scully.


  1. Holy crap that's a great card! '53 Bowman Color is fantastic in any condition but a PSA 9 is mind-blowing.

  2. Never heard of the guy... but if he's friends with Scully... he's A-okay in my book.

    P.S. Beautiful card!
