As a late addition to the field Matt Hutchins is in the mix against some of the top amateurs at the Northeast Amateur.
Born on Easter and April Fool’s day. Fill in your own punch lines . . . . . Attended Game 7s at Fenway Park in 1967 and 1975, World Series that the Red Sox won, 3 games to 4 . . . . . Still waiting for Tony Perez’s moonshot against Bill Lee (An Eephus pitch? In Game 7? Seriously?) to come down . . . . . Bringing the E-Club to Ireland, Scotland, and Australia . . . . . Witnessing Alex Miceli’s low-pull peeler hit well left then rolling dead right for 35 feet until it found the bottom of the cup at No. 5. His ace, my club (Milton Hoosic). Deflating . . . . . Watching sons James and Colin star for the Milton Dodgers . . . . Sitting two seats from Dave Anderson for nine straight Masters . . . . . The blur of the countryside on all those rides with Fergie . . . . . Every round at The Boston Golf Club, where the spirit of John Mineck is rekindled. A friend, a hero, a legend.
