Con Daily is an All-Star

I am so proud today. I have written many articles in my career but I am especially excited about my article that appears today in today’s Boston Globe.

It is a tribute to baseball, to the All-Star Game, to NYC, to my favorite baseball pub, Foley’s. But, more importantly, it is such an honor to include my great-grandfather, Cornelius (Con) Daily, in the article. Con is part of the 30,000 baseball card collection and, while not part of the current Dead Ball exhibit (the photo cap is wrong) he is in the Metropolitan Museum of Art‘s prestigious baseball card collection. I salute you Con, and love you very much.

If you get a chance, visit the Museum to see the Legends of Baseball exhibit, hit up Foley’s for a beer and, hole up in the Hotel Belleclaire for a night (this is where Babe Ruth once lived.)

Baseball lives on in our hearts forever.
