Neat Return from Chuck Locke
It's always nice to get a letter back when writing requests to players. I've had quite a few letters come back and they're almost always from guys who played back in the 50s. I had a nice note come back from former Oriole Chuck Locke. It was especially interesting because in high school I wrote a paper on the Eastern Shore Baseball league, which he mentions in his letter. Chuck only played 2 games in the majors but he had a long career, totaling 9 years, before making it to the show in 1955.
