1985 : Mitch Albom’s First Column in Detroit Free Press

August 4, 2022 all-day

Writing for a new audience can strum your nerves a bit. But not for long. Sports have a way of bridging gaps between people. Like when Casey Stengel caught a pitcher sneaking back at 4 a.m. from the tavern.

“Drunk again”, Stengel scolded.

“Me too”, the pitcher said.

See? Togetherness.
