Arminius Frank Tanana was a pitcher in professional baseball. One year he was named the starting pitcher for the major league all star game. This was a great honor in the 1970’s which is when this happened.

For those unfamiliar with the baseball season, you should be aware that the season is roughly six months with no vacation time allotted. So, the time during the all-star break (around 5 days) was a break for those who did not make the all-star team.

Well Frank had scheduled a family vacation during those days prior to the season.

So he is unexpectantly named as starting pitcher for the all-star game. But he showed what is really important by declining the honor and going on his family vacation.
