  Another piece of my younger days. Danny was, well, a blue-chip prospect and he knew it when he was with the Pirates. Pretty arrogant young fellow. But after being traded a few times and landing with the Orioles, he mellowed out. He spent a few years with Bowie and Rochester and I saw a lot of him then. He gave me one of his bats after a game in Binghamton - he had hit a home run with it that night, and he believed each bat had only one home run in it, so he gave it to me as the only Bowie fan there. I wonder what's been going on with him since he left baseball, and how this came to happen. Sad.
