The family with my nephews Henry (baseball pitcher heading to University of Louisiana at Monroe) and Mason (baseball pitcher heading into his senior year at Washington and Lee University). And yes, they are tall, Henry is 6’7 and Mason is almost 6’6. For perspective, my wife (in the photo) is a little over 5’11.
Incredible to see some live baseball after months of zero sports. On the mound is Henry Shuffler (my nephew). He will be pitching for University of Louisiana at Monroe next year.
My grandfather was a pitcher in the Cape Cod Baseball League before serving in World War II. He enjoyed sports and spending time with other athletes. During his retirement years in Florida he played golf with Johnny Antonelli. Antonelli was the ace pitcher (21-7 with a 2.30 ERA) for the New York Giants in 1954 when they won the World Series. I spent a day with Johnny and my grandfather watching spring training games in 1986. Antonelli let me wear his World Series ring for an entire game. Johnny Antonelli died just this past February at the age of 89. More about him: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnny_Antonelli
