MASSACHUSEI-I'S PORT AUTHORITY THOMAS P. GLYNN CEO AND EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Run date: 11/30/12 Memories of Old Baseball Cards I recently went to a flea market and found some great old baseball cards. Back in the '50s and '60s my brother and I had a great collection of baseball cards dating from 1957 to 1964. Most of them were TOPPS cards but we also had Flairs and Post cereal boxes too. Back 50 years ago, the cereal company put about 10 cards on the backs of their cereal boxes. We use to eat our ce- real quickly so we could get the scissors and tear up the boxes. My prized baseball card from those cereal boxes was Whitey~Ford from th'~'NY Yatt~ kees who won the Cy Young in 1961 going 25-4 for the World Series champs. My recent flea market Fmds included a young Jamie Moyer and Roger Clemens. However, going back to the old days, I remember almost every card we had in those old shoe boxes.

DeCristofaro, Register of Probate Run date: 11/30/12 by Sal Giarratani Mickey Mantle, Hank Aaron and Willie Mays and then lesser known players like Jim Gentile, Rocky Colavito, Johnny Temple and Tito Francona. I think I knew ev- ery Italian American baseball player of my generation. I even remember the Red Sox pitching coach who helped make Dick Radatz the Mon- ster, a guy named Sal Maglia who was a decent pitcher in the early '50s for the New York Giants. I wish I still had those old cards from my youth but one day my mother decided my brother and I were too old for baseball cards and gave them to a little kid who lived a few blocks from us. I can remem- ber today the heartache I felt hearing that news. If that kid was smart, he hid them from his mother and is probably one of the 2 percent today that Obama keeps going after for more taxes. Rockies Hire Weiss Walt Weiss is going from a high school dugout to the big leagues in one giant leap. The Colorado Rockies have hired the former major league shortstop to replace ex-manager Jim TracY who resigned in October with one year and $1.4 million left on his contract. The 1988 AL Rookie of the Year with Oakland, Weiss played for the Rockies from 1994-97 and was a special assistant to G.M. Dan O'Dowd from 2002-08. Last season he was coaching Regis Jesuit High School in Aurora, Colo- rado leading his 20-6 team to the semifinals of the state championship. The 48-year-old Weiss spent parts of 14 seasons in the majors also playing for the Marlins and the Braves. He was a .258 lifetime batter and made the All-Star team in 1998 at Coors Field. Last season, under Tracy, the Rockies were 64-98. In 2009, Tracy kvas named NL Man- ager of the Year for taking Colorado to the playoffs that year.

WITNESS, HON. PETER C. DiGANGI, First Justice of this Court. Date: November 15, 2012 Tara E. DeCristofaro, Register of Probate Run date: 11/30/12 R.A. Dickey of the NY Mets won baseball's Cy Young Award for 2012. Price barely beat out Justin Verlander for the American League award but Dickey was an easy choice in the National League. The 38 year-old Dickey became the first knuckleball pitcher to win the Cy Young and gave a nod to those who paved the way like Hall of Famer Phil Niekro, his mentor. Dickey said, "I am not a self-made man. This is a victory for all of us." This year the AL award was the closest in voting since a 1969 tie be- tween Mike Cuellar of the Orioles and Denny McClain of the Tigers. Price went 20-5 and had the lowest league ERA at 2.56 and finished with 205 strike- outs. He barely beat out Verlander, the 2011 Cy Young winner, who went 17-8 with a 2.64 ERA and 239 strikeouts. Dickey joins Doc Gooden (1985) and 3-timer winner Tom Seaver as the only NY Mets Cy Young win- ners. Dickey was also the club's first 20-game winner since Frank Viola back in 1990. Oakland Takes Back Colon The Oakland Athletics have decided to bring back Bartolo Colon with no hard feelings. The AL Manager of the Year Bob Melvin is appar- ently happy the right-hander will be returning after he ended 2012 with a 50-game suspension for testing posi- tive for reportedly juicing it up on the mound. He's a lucky guy if you ask me! Sox Add Gomes The Boston Red Sox just picked up outfielder Jonny Gomes off the free agency talent pool. The Sox have agreed to a 2-year contract pending a medical examina- tion. The deal is worth some $10 million. He just turned 32 years old and is coming off a good year with Oak- land with 18 homers in 279 at-bats. He reminds me a lot of cowboy Kevin Millar. Gomes enjoyed a career comeback season with Oakland after signing with them last season. He batted .262 with 47 RBIs to go with his 18 home runs. He is a career .244 hitter with 136 homers and 411 RBIs. He's been bouncing around of late going from Cincinnati to Washington to Oakland.
