The year is 2053
The place is Florida
A wizened and grey Ryan Crutchfield sits in his rocking chair sipping a sarsaparilla. His pet alligator “Spot” resting by his feet (or perhaps stumps, alligators are very difficult to domesticate).
A passing reporter for the Tampa Bay Times, recognizing Ryan, stops to ask “What is your greatest baseball memory?”
Without hesitation Ryan replies, "Why that would be the night I shared a bench with The Legend Jerry Tone".
This is a true story, or at least it will be in about 40 years.
