The Sunday dinner was something I tried to maintain as a tradition during my playing days, although those long road trips made it a challenge. I remember enjoying pot roast and green beans for dinner after getting Dick Allen, of the Chicago White Sox, to fly out to right on a high fastball on a very hot Sunday afternoon. Allen came up to me after I walked off the mound and said, “You got me.”
But I considered it kind of a draw, because I didn’t strike him out.
