Starting in 1910, Harry Haigh played six seasons in Class A and B ball, catching for teams like the Lynn Shoemakers and the New Orleans Pelicans before hurting his knee, hanging up his spikes and returning to Philadelphia, where he spent his days as a mounted police officer.
He also took his daughter to a lot of games, which is how Jessie Foyle of Roborough began a love affair with baseball that's served her well over her 94 years. She's seen a lot of games, with season tickets at two stadiums, and built a streak of consecutive World Series seen that stands at 45.
She thought her move into a retirement home last May would mean more time to watch the game. She was wrong.
It's difficult to follow your game on the radio when you are near deaf.
