My cousin, Bob. was very much into sports. As kids growing up and having family gatherings; playing "bottlecaps" ( a baseball-like city game where the ball is a metal bottle cap, usually from beer; and the bat was a long broom handle) was a favorite for all ages. Everyone wanted Bob on their team as he could hit it out of the park....well at least into the street or the neighbor's yard. good times and good memories. Pat

My sympathies to Bob's family. I knew Bob through bowling leagues and tournaments at Bel Air Bowl, Belleville in the 70's and 80's. We also traveled to Cincinnati for the Hoinke Classic the third weekend in April. That group of guys shared a lot of fun and memories-tales that were told and re-told when we would see each other. Great fun. Bob was a nice man and I'm glad he was my friend.
