"When I was in high school, I worked as the visiting team clubhouse boy. It was '49 and '50, right after the World Series. We shined the shoes, got the uniforms after the game into the big commercial washer. If it was a double-header, you made sandwiches. I think we got paid maybe $5 a game, but we got tipped. I got to sit next to Connie Mack, Joe DiMaggio, Ted Williams. I can remember taking my Spanish homework over to the Indians clubhouse. I'd give it to Bobby Avila, and he'd do my homework."
