First we're in St. Louis, Missouri, where we encounter Cy Young and the Perfectos wearing, for the first time, the color red (called 'cardinal' by the sportswriters and fans). We hear scary, exciting stories of the past exploits of the Rough Riders and Col. Roosevelt.

I grew up in Lexington, Kentucky in the 1970’s. We had no artists of any kind in the family. We didn’t know any artists. I liked sports, especially baseball. My mother read to me a lot.
