Happy birthday Barry!

When my brother Barry celebrated his 8th birthday, our parents took us to a Washington Senators baseball game (at RFK Stadium!).  That season the manager of the Senators was the great Ted Williams, the Red Sox slugger.

Well, my dad arranged for the stadium to include Barry's name on the outfield scoreboard in the list of birthdays being celebrated that day.  But when all the happy birthdays went up, Barry's name was nowhere to be found.

So my dad headed back to some office to ask them to correct it.  And a few innings later, the following message appeared on the scoreboard:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO

BARRY FABER

AND 

TED WILLIAMS

That's a nice way to share your birthday.

Today is Barry's birthday - hope it is a great day!
