Ray Fosse says, "Good Morning, Cleveland"

Was reading an excellent essay, which I'll get to later, and blowing through random songs on my iTunes playlist when one of those serendipitous moments occurred and I was thinking about Ray Fosse just as the Baseball Project's song "Past Time" was playing.

The line — which is just part of the beautiful and haunting and Petty-at-his-best-like meandering and ponderous song — hit the speakers just as I was googling pictures of Ray Fosse so here he is.

We all know the main, tragic story line. What I didn't know is that Fosse tied for 23rd in MVP voting in 1970 (Boog Powell won that year).
