MASS-IVE ATTACK:

Little Pitchers (Letters, June 7, 2009, Boston Globe)

During the recent Yankee visit to Fenway I watched a game on TV with my 9-year-old son, Michael (we're both for the Sox), and reviewed the names of a few players. When number 20 came up to bat, I told him the player's name was Kevin Youkilis. Michael said he looked as if he belonged in a story about Jesus. When I asked him why, he said, "Because he has a beard and he has that name, you know, Eucharist." Well, at least I know he's paying attention in church.
