I made a short trip to San Bernardino to meet former major league All-Star Howard Johnson. During the offseason, Howard got the gig of managing the High Desert Mavericks in the California League.
After waiting a short while after the game, Howard came out and signed for the few of us that were waiting for him. The New York Mets great was thrilled to see that I had a 16×20 photo of him.
