ADDENDUM

Bob Lindsay played in all three games in Houston. His family was present for all three. He pitch hit the first night and grounded out, played first base the second and struck out both times he appeared.

On September 13th, he got his first major league base hit. The Astro outfielder retrieved the ball and it weas given to him as is the custom of the game. He said later, " I tried not to smile too much out there, I didn't want everyone to think I was some kid."

After nearly 16 years of trying, Robert Lindsay is a Major Leaguer. The team in Los Angeles is so woeful, that he has become the talk of the sports bars. He sees it as nothing special, but maybe a chance for a real tryout in the spring.

  4. Ann: I expect Robert will still be dreaming about what could have been when he retires, but it is a nice story to watch for now.
