August 17, 1957 On this date....
...I was born fifty years ago. I now qualify as a Red Hatter. (Look for the red hat I made for myself in the to-be-released Knifty Knitter booklet from Leisure Arts.)
Also on this date - Philadelphia Phillies baseball player, Richie Ashburn hit a foul ball into the stands that struck spectator Alice Roth, breaking her nose. When play resumed, Ashburn fouled off another ball that hit her again as she being carried off in a stretcher.
