Archibald "Moonlight" Graham?

Give that man a kewpie doll!  Nice going...

My first thought was a young John McGraw.  I wonder if some of our younger members even know what a kewpie doll is?

Long-live Doc!

May I ask why you chose A. W. Graham for your avatar?

Well, I love "Field of Dreams," and the whole Archie "Moonlight" "Doc" Graham story fascinated me, due to the fact of his being a real person.  One day i went looking for a photo and found one someplace.  Decided to honor him by making his photo my avatar.  June 29 was the 107th anniversary of his only appearance in a major league game.  Man, that's a lonnnng time ago!

Thanks for the explanation, that's really cool.

I asked my wife last night if we could name our son after him. I gave her the choice of "Archibald" or "Moonlight" or even "Doc". Lets just say it didn't go over too well. 

You could always give him a name starting with "A," or a nickname of "Doc."  Might encourage him to go to med school!
