Elsewhere: Doug Glanville in review


While the Chicago White Sox and Minnesota Twins have done their best to keep the 2008 baseball season alive, the break in the action otherwise means it’s as good a day as any to catch up on former Major Leaguer Doug Glanville’s op-ed pieces for the New York Times.

Glanville, a Upenn graduate who played in the bigs from 1996 to 2004, has been contributing poignant and insightful columns all season. His latest is a letter to Will Veneble, the second African-American with an Ivy League education to make the big show. Glanville was the first.

Whether he’s writing about the first game after 9/11, answering fan mail, celebrating birthdays in the clubhouse or raising children, Glanville’s insights into the game are a must read for diehards and pedestrian fans alike.
