Welcome Home

I got a phone call yesterday morning that I will be inducted into my high school's Hall of Fame, All Hallows, this fall. It's three blocks from Yankee Stadium and I took the subway behind the center field fence when it was a grammar and high school for 12 years. Don't think I don't think about that every time I'm on the field at Yankee Stadium. My initial reaction to this incredible honor was to quote Groucho Marx who said, "I'd never want to belong to a club that would have me as a member."

My new Pulitzer-Prize-winning-book-in-waiting, "Baseball for the Utterly Confused" from McGraw-Hill hits bookstores this week. This is NOT like baseball for dummies. It has a lot of history in it and all-time lists that I take editorial license with. It's an entertaining read, especially the excerpts from my unforgettable playing career that people are still talking about.

Our all-in-color, Tony-Award-winning "Ed Randall's Tallking Baseball" show begins its 8th season on WFAN-Radio Valentine's Day morning at 9AM. We'll go about the business of catching up on all the news we've missed since being off the air.

So glad I visited this site! I'm listening to your "Talking Baseball" show on the FAN as I type and just had to tell you how much I enjoy your program--and how excited I was when I heard your opening (and much-missed) trademark remarks this morning. When Ed Randall is giving us the ground rules, can opening day be far behind?

Ed, welcome back. I've been checking your blog all Winter! When you move to Saturday late in the season, please keep those podcasts coming. I listen to them too Sunday mornings when the NFL season starts, and you are not there.
